looking for 17" laptop with awesome battery life
What 17" laptop's are equal to the macbook pro's battery life?
Specs don't really matter since it's mostly word processing, web browsing, etc. No gaming or etc.
Will mostly be used to watch movies every now and then, hence the 17"

Newegg.com - HP ProBook 4730s (LJ524UT#ABA) Notebook Intel Core i5 2430M(2.40GHz) 17.3" 4GB Memory DDR3 1333 500GB HDD 7200rpm DVD+/-RW SuperMulti DL AMD Radeon HD 6490M
That one claims 8 hours and 30 minutes.
Newegg.com - DELL XPS 17 (L702x) Notebook Intel Core i5 2430M(2.40GHz) 17.3" 6GB Memory DDR3 1333 750GB HDD 7200rpm 8X CD/DVD Burner (Dual Layer DVD+/-R Drive) NVIDIA GeForce GT 550M
And this one has a 9cell battery.
