8 cell 92w hour battery.
I'm looking at buying a laptop. I want a good one. Good for games, good for art. I'm looking for a drawing tablet too, but laptop first because the quicker I can burn the school one the better.
Now, the problem with that is I have no idea what half the shit means when they talk about Core3D-EX or lithium ion or 17.3 inch FHD (1920 x 1080) IPS Anti-Glare 300-nits Display (I know what anti-glare and display is).
But, I've worked out enough to figure out the computer I'm looking at is good.
I'm looking at the Alienware 17, problem is that it's expensive as all heck, and I don't understand a few bits of mumbo jabble when I'm looking at the bits that are important to me.
Like battery life.

8-cell Lithium Ion (92 WHr) Battery.
Does this mean it has a good battery? All my electronics have a tendency to be arseholes and just run out of battery as quick as they can. I understand I have all the shit brands, and school computers just suck by default, but I might be spending real good money on this thing, so I need to know that it's good.

Alienware is a subsidiary of Dell, which is a very good brand. It appears to be designed to be good for gaming.
Lithium ion is the latest and greatest for batteries.
FHD is Full High Definition, the name for the 1920 x 1080 display.
Nit is the unit for luminance. Mobile devices average 200 to 300 nits. 300 and above are good.
92 WHr refers to how much total "juice" it can put out. 92 hours at one watt or one hour at 92 watts, or any compo that equals that. how long it maintains your computer depends on how much your computer draws.1
