I noticed HD-DVD player was listed under the system specs. I wonder when Toshiba will begin offering Blu-Ray players instead?

Next time try to actually read the review before you post questions that are already answered in it.

"When assessing overall battery life, the system performed as expected, with MobileMark 2007 reporting 1:15hrs of battery life"

I think he meant if the unit was outfitted with 8800Ms.

Aside from the 8800m having more stream processors, faster core and shader clock speeds, and higher bit memory interface the two cards are very similar. Both have the same amount of DDR3 memory, support Directx10 and share the same power saving technologies. Correct me if I am wrong, but I would assume any difference in power consumption to be negligible and thus battery life would be  virtually the same regardless of which card was installed. Although if the cards were being pushed to their absolute limit there may be a slight difference in power consumption but I would still predict it to be rather insignificant.
