Yeah, I remember when my dad got his Acer laptop and I had to spend like 2 hours uninstalling and updating crap on the computer. Not fun.

Typically, most consumer notebooks come bloated on arrival. That's why I recommend users buy business notebooks.

Wow it says there was two and a half hours left and two and a half hours or so later (give or take maybe 10 minutes) it was pretty much gone.

Think yourselves lucky that Vista even calculated how much you have left, because on my Laptop, which is apparently a HP fault, it does not display how long I have left, just a percentage, which is pretty inaccurate
