Perfect example of my battery issue. Laptop has been up for 1:16 and I have 18% (now 16% actually) of my battery remaining.

@kev I would personally consider keeping a desktop (for easy upgradability) and buy something like a pinebook, it has good battery life, is cheap and is a computer. Then I would set up WOL on my desktop, so I can turn it on whenever I need the horse power for development and SSH into it from the pinebook, other than that pinebook should be sufficient for note taking/web browsing/whatever. This might not fit everybody's use case, but I think it would work for me
