I bought a 9 cell Acer Aspire battery (ebay from china) and with AAFan (similar fan-program are out there on the web) to keep the fan (and the power... and the salty air spray on the motherbaord) to a minimum I get about 13 hour running OpenCPN and my little favourite program NavMonPC on one charging. Using dc/dc plug or just normal 230V from a puresinusinverter.

The other one is newer and a little bit better (Aspire ONE 250 with just one GB memory) but running awful win7 and some crap from Android...)

Will soon enough make the latter an XP again...

The 2 old IBM thinkpads is still running XP and got the handy serial-port and the screen is large enough to run 1200x720 so that is good for MaxSea there.

For controlling i use a trackball glued to the chart table or just for showing off: AirMouse on a Ipod via the WiFi onboard. Wonder why we always do repairs instead of lying on the beaches...
