Ive never really tested the battery life of the G4 15" I have though I know that I can happily sit on the train for 3 hours working between Word, BBedit and PDF's in preview with no battery issues. On Friday night I left the train at around 20.30 and put the powerbook into sleep mode thinking I would use it when I got home. I ended up going straight to bed and woke the laptop at 2pm the next day to find it still had an hour of battery power left. There is no way that would of happened with my old Dell.
