  1. Any laptops w/ battery that lasts an entire trading session? like 7 hours without a recharge?

    Thanks.
     
  2. maybe a netbook but most would be very underpowered. I use a solar charger hooked to mine if im away from juice.

  4. http://www.apple.com/macbook/features.html (7 hours)

    and - depending on your broker and trading style

    http://www.apple.com/ipad/ (10 hours)

    (Keep in mind that you have to account for preparation pre-market, etc., so it's going to be a bit tight - might as well trade oil for 5.5 RTH :D )

    it would also depend on CPU load..i remember some old netbooks with SSD would work just fine for 8 hours or so under light load.

    You could always buy 2 extended life batteries. Cheaper than buying a whole computer just for its battery life but you would also have to reboot too.
