NEC’s VersaPro VY10A/C-4 laptop lasts 14.5-hours on a single charge

I would definitely want to have this laptop. Battery life is one of the key reasons why I like laptops, having to pull out the old charger and find a plug in a coffee shop or Bread Garden is not fun. NEC’s VersaPro VY10A/C-4 laptop lasts 14.5-hours on a single charge NEC’s latest VersaPro UltraLite Type VCwon’t appeal to any hardcore gamers or mobile movie cutters, but the casual joe (or jane) will likely find its hardware plenty capable of handling those everyday tasks. What’s more is that this sucka claims a whopping 14.5-hours of life if you utilize the extended battery, which is pretty impressive for a 12.1-incher.

Take a look at the oh-so-tough outer shell after the jump. [Via AkihabaraNews]Continue reading NEC’s VersaPro VY10A/C-4 laptop lasts 14.5-hours on a single charge [EnGadget]

AT&T To Impose Early Cancellation Charge On iPhone

AT&T To Impose Early Cancellation Charge On iPhone -

Thinking about getting an iPhone, unlocking it, then jetting across the street to T-Mobile? Better think twice before doing that friend, ’cause AT&T is out to nail you with a hefty fine for backing out of your agreement with them. Despite the iPhone not being a subsidized item for AT&T, the company still will charge you $175 for terminating your contract early. Sucky, I know.

Like I’ve said in the past, AT&T needs to retain these iPhone customers that will swarm stores next week. Imposing a cancellation fee of that caliber sucks, but it’s how the world works. No word if customers with existing accounts will be subject to the fee.
