My 560X gets exactly 1:45 each time I run it down to the ground ie
hibernation is enforced. This is on full CPU speed, no power
conservation, either running Scandisk or WinAMP. At 1/2 CPU speed I get
around 3 hours, but never timed that precisely.

Actually, it has already been done, but not by IBM. Go to www.jpd.com
and take a look at the Panasonic CF-44E. 3.5 lbs *with* CD-ROM
installed. The screen is 11.3" XGA. The notebooks itself is 10.6 x 8.5 x
1.1 inches (270 x 215 x 27.9mm).
