Does your battery last longer if you play a dvd on your laptop, or download a movie to your hard drive? I think the latter, but am I correct?

Not sure, but I believe downloading it is the correct answer. Your hard drive will be working either way. This way at least the optical drive isn't spinning as well.

I'd say dvd if it's on your HDD and downloading if it's an actual DVD
