hey. as the title states, im thinking about buying a gp2x. I dont know any programming languages, but know how to compile. I have read that the battery life is poor... that seems to be the only thing holding me back from buying a gp2x... i love the homebrew scene... and am interested in all the homebrew apps.. but... how bad could the battery life be? and.. its there anything i can do to fix that? besides rechargeable batteries?

You don't need to know any programming to use the gp2x, just some computer knowledge and the ability to follow directions (very important :p )

The battery life should improve in future firmware upgrades. The best thing to do for now is to buy some rechargable batteries (I would recommend 2500 mAh). I have some nihm 2500 mAh energizer batteries and a pair of them lasts about 4 hours.
