Hi devdasbindas and welcome to our forums



If you are looking for a laptop computer with a long battery life (to act as a replacement for a desktop computer)  there are many available but do remember that battery life is dependent to a certain extent on the use the computer is put to.


Normally if the laptop is to be used on a desktop then its possible to use it whilst connected to the mains electrical supply ( via the supplied power cord and  Power Supply Unit)


When the machine is used on battery wi fi draws quite a lot of power so if its not needed then switching it off can extend battery endurance.


The brightness settings for your VDU also can have quite an effect on battery endurance ( the brighter you have them the quicker the battery is drained.


Also remember that as time goes by performance of the battery deteriorates leading to a shorter interval between charges.


For folks where battery endurance is important then a maybe buying a spare battery at the time you purchase your machine so you always have a fully charged one available might be worth considering.


Look at the specifications of the computers you are considering as often a rough indication of expected battery endurance is provided... but do remember this is only a guide....
