Pre-Beta, Win 7 gives 11% extra battery life over Vista

According to Engadget, even in a Pre-Beta state, Win 7 is making great progress

Windows 7 also manages wireless radios better allowing them to drop below 100% power draw while managing the connection. And by tweaking the OS kernel, the CPU can sometimes run at a lower frequency and stay idle longer.

Nice, indeed 🙂
