in the SL-6000L, it's 1500mAh and it lasts for about 8h, or about 3.5 hours using wifi (integrated)

I use them with wifi, so those are the figures you should trust ;-).

I don't know about the C-series, but they should be similar to the SL-6000.

Err, I have the SL-5500 and I get a good deal more than 3 hours. 4 at least.

btw... recharge fully the battery and store it off of the device.

The Zaurus C-860 battery's capacity is 1700 mAH. It's 5cm x 3cm x 1cm. Apparently someone managed to run it with screen off, wifi (CF-card) on and headphones plugged into it streaming music for 12 hours. I believe him, because when I am using it, I don't have to care about battery state during the day. But I have to care about the energy state when I am using the iLiad, because you can nearly see the battery drain when you are scribbling...

The Zaurus doesn't have a real power switch, it just suspends and resumes in no time. So actually you nearly never have to boot it. It's nice and I do not know why this shouldn't be possible with the iLiad as well. After all it does have more or less the same ingredients and lacks a thirsty mega bright vga color display...

well, the battery in the iLiad is only 1100 mAh.

I really hope, they get a much better battery life out if it.

Its really a mistake, not to have a replaceable battery.

Yep, but it has a mega-EM-bright radar screen.

He means the Zaurus used an energy hungry colour LCD with abcklight and the iLiad uses an e-ink screen.

That's what I wrote. So I still do not understand it.

Yes, but it has a mega-electromagnetic(radiation)-bright radar screen. I think this is referring to the always-on wireless that the iliad has.

Nope. I refer to the wacom. How is that nobody is surprised that the Wacon pen does not need to rechage batteries, nor even touch the screen to work? When I got my NCR 3125 (x386DX pentablet) I was surprised because of that.

(Test the latter: in the drawing program, press the tip of the pen while it is near the screen)

That sounds like a reasonably good reason for not allowing iLiads to be turned on in an aeroplane ... but as you say, would any owner realise it?

Or am I being paranoid?

Probably. A lot of people have used pen notebooks for years now, and most of them use the wacom.
