Compaq laptop

This is not directly related to linux, but kind of. DOes anyone know what the baterry life of a compaq R3000 series laptop is? Ok, so maybe it's not related to linux at all. But I'll be running Debian on it if I decide to get it !!

i sell them laptops and i tell my customers that depending on usage the range will be
2 - 4 hours, and with very light usage maybe upwards to 5 hours .... oh and if your
thinking of getting, just keep in mind that there is the R3000T dedicated and and a
R3000T shared, and you don't want the shared one cause as we all know shared
graphics are brutal oh and if i can throw in a personal recommendation i'd say go with
the R3000Z as it has the Athlon 64 bit processor in it, no use getting a crappy P4 when
you can have that bad boy and you'd save money cause AMD's are manufactured for
less money

oh and yah keep in mind a post like this will go in the General fourm in the future as
this is not a linux related question ..

As for the 1200, what exactly are you asking for? The BIOS password?

If you wanting the BIOS password on some systems by removing the CMOS battery will clear that out. I have noticed on some systems that doesnt always work. If you feal gutty you can try and Flash the BIOS and that will wipe the passwrd from the system. BECAREFULL when doing so or you could end up with nothing more than an expensive paperweight....... wel not expensive since you found yours.
