Re: W520 - Update after 3 months

[ Edited ]

Heh heh nice story. Yeah. It's all a sort of twisted joke to me sometimes. I can't even wake a 3000 dollar computer with the **bleep** mouse. (and I'm not using my dock so I have to move my kbd, and open it each time to start it, very annoying lol) Sheesh.

Re: W520 - Update after 3 months

Another update, I suppose.


The battery life has not continued on the same trajectory it was on previously; it kind of leveled off on a plateau of sorts and hasn't really gotten worse since the last time I posted.


Hopefully it stays stable. It isn't as good as it was the day it showed up here, but at least it's behaving itself for now.


With my luck it'll probably drop like a rock the day the warranty ends though.
