    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    Don't know about this system, but some have "extended run" batteries that have more cells (9 vs. 6 for example) - I have such for my Lenovo laptop. If not, then get a second battery as a spare. When the first one runs down, hibernate the system, switch the batteries, and restart it - it will return to where you left off. I do that on my personal Dell quite effectively. I have also used drive bay batteries to extend run times - Dell has those. Yours may have that as an option as well. Check with the manufacturer's web site. A drive bay battery plugs into where the CD/DVD drive goes.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
