Asus notebook A7 issues

Hi guys,

I've got a few questions and I hope you guys can help me.

-  when the battery is fully charged, the estimated time is about 1
hour and 45 minutes (although i've seen specs on the Asus site saying 3
hours battery life!).  I could live with 2 hours (or a little less),
but it appears that --when watching a dvd or divx movie- the battery
will only last for 45 minutes!  Not nearly enough for one short movie!
Is this normal?  Ok, the A7Jc has got a 17" tft, but 45 minutes is very
low, isn't it?

- unfortunately, my cat has already made my LCD screen a little dirty.
Does anyone know what's the best way to clean the tft screen of the A7J
notebook? It's a bright anti-reflection glare-type kind of lcd (bright
colour lcd i think they call it).

-  I read that the A7J on board audio, supports 3d sound.  What if I
would want to have EAX support in games? Would I need to connect an
external audio device supporting EAX or is there a way to connect my
5.1 speakerset to the A7Jc directly?

Many thanks in advance!!

DVDS draw more power because ( 1 ) the dvd drive is kept in motion, (
2) The processor  and video chip is at full duty cycle (3) the screen
is continuously lit.

I'll leave the other parts of your question to others.

True! But... the laptop from work (a Dell D600) will last for almost
4(!) hours when i'm watching dvd or divx, wireless turned on all the
time, etc.  When i compare 4 hours with 45 minutes, i feel like crying
a little  :-)

You might try another DVD player software and/or changing
some settings on the present software, it does seem unusual
to only get 45 minutes.
