Honestly, I'm a bit disappointed. (Ok, disappointed isn't the best word here, but.. yeah.) I was hoping my model was one of the ones affected. I could use a new battery - the battery lasts about... 2 hours now, on normal usage. I can extend that to 3 by dimming the screen and killing non-essentials, but... yeah. Granted, I don't have more than 3 hours of class per day, usually, but....
