    I also use NIS 2009 and it is a big improvement over previous Symantec AV versions in terms of CPU Usage. Best feature is that it also comes with a CPU Usage monitor how much of your system Norton is using up.

    However, I also recommend Eset Nod32 as it will have a really light footprint on you computer of only approx. 34MB.

    By the way, I do full scans for External HDs running on battery and Norton Internet Security doesn't seem to drain or prolong battery life any more than any other program you're running.
