Will t420s be available with 9-cell battery slice?

2011-04-21, 18:30 PM

Just a quick question:

Will the t420s be available with a 9-cell battery slice, like the t420 is?

Cus im not sure if i wanna go with the t420 or the t420s, but if i can only get ~5,5 hours out of the t420s, id absolutely go with the t420(10h withe the 9-cell, and up to 30 with the 9-cell battery slice just sounds too good to pass up on!).


Thx in advance :)

Lenovo claims 10 hours with the 6-cell and the 3-cell expantion bay battery.


My math says more like an eazy 5 hours or more.


If you want mobility go for the t420s IMO. 


If you need serious power (cpu and graphics) and also mobility go for the t420 as it will have the better resolution and the better battery life to support a loaded porcessor and full graphics card for quite some time.
