I really want one of these but I just cannot justify 80 Euros posted to the UK! that 72 GBP.

Well Romania isnt UK and you will need the battery because of the Gigabyte M912s power drain while off.

*Dear User, Thank you for your kindly mail and inquiry. About the issue you mentioned, after checking with relevant department, during power off status, it is normal the battery consumed 8%~12% after one day. Sorry for the inconvenience.*

Hey guys, now I just take apart the battery from my EeePC 701 when I know I won't use in the day because of the battery drain.

Maybe it's even worse for the M912 but I was disappointed like you when half of my 701's battery were drained after a week turned off.

Of course they could make the battery drain smaller and that would be great. However they will always be *some* battery drain, just for the motherboard to wait for you to press the "power on" button. So, remove the battery when you don't use the device, and that's all.

Thats just bad manufacturing.If everyone acts like you they will continue to sell overpriced crap to the people.

I wouldnt wonder if the M912's suicide by deep discharge.

Of course I'm not saying that things should not change. Of course it is bad manufacturing! As such, the discharge rate of the device is the kind of things I will dig up before deciding if I want to buy the device.

However now you have a device and you must live with it. You have to live with the bad design. So, remove your battery when you don't use the device for prolonged periods...

I never shut mine down, always simple close it (hibernation) and put it on the charger when I go to bed.

I'm litte confused. You picture show clearly that the 6-cell battery has 7650 mAh, as it documented at the gigabyte-homepage. On the other hand you find at many shops 6750 mAh batteries for m912. Just a typo?

the 6cell gave me 3hours15min with linux running at 50% screenlight and wifi/bt turned on. I have the high-res screen version of the m912X which uses a bit more power than the other models.
