My advice: get a laptop.

exactly. If it is doable to put a battery in a laptop, why not have an option to put a small battery in a desktop. I would pay for that.  ( figuerres, there are not problems shipping laptops with connected batteries. )

btw, I lost power last week and today. IE both times lost stuff. Where I lost my IE most popular sites, had to reenter passwords.
