Eee-pc.de are reporting on their testing of the MSI Wind U115 Hybrid , and the results are surprising: the machine can run on a single charge using an extended-life 9-cell battery (the standard battery is a 6-cell job) for as much as a day for lite computing tasks, and up to 10 hours of intense use.  The secret appears to be a combination of the Intel Menlow 15w chipset/Atom Z530 1.6GHz cpu, and the hybrid HD/SSD storage system (which allows the system to store frequently used data on the SSD so the hard drive doesn't have to spin up).
