Reflective Notebook Displays
On a notebook computer, the main power drain is typically the display. New technology called reflective displays promise significant power savings.
In the Lavie MX2, NEC has designed a unique and innovative machine which utilizes a new technology called reflective displays. In a typical notebook computer, the display takes up the lion's share of the power which limits usage times to a mere 3 hours.

The MX2 utilizes a 10.4" XGA TFT technology called reflexive LCD. The R-LCD technology utilizes reflected ambient light on the LCD. So, the more ambient light, the sharper the screen. This technology allows the MX2's remarkable battery life - up to 8 hours on one standard-size battery.
