My G60 asus 15" gaming laptop is a great balance between battery life, power and portability. Its not as huge as a 17" sager or alienware desktop replacement, but it can still crank out the latest 3D games like BF:BC2 and left for dead2 on max settings with great FPS. If I need to use it for web surfing or something while unplugged on the go, still gets hours of life out of it before needing to recharge. Best laptop I've ever owned.
For those calling BS, not necessarily. Having been in places where power outages are common, lights are always one of the first things on the list for critical things, due to safety. Others include security doors and alarms. It's not about the wattage or power, it's about what circuit they're connected to, and outlets and things like cameras wouldn't be connected to a circuit marked as critical.
Very strange that power could not be routed from elsewhere. As for its about safety, Yes most places DO have lights as a priority, but not ALL lights. Select lights make sense(enough to see with, not the full stage).
Also call BS, they would have at least a couple of handheld battery powered camcorders (as mentioned, for exterior shots). Wouldn't have taken more than 30 minutes to go pick a new portable camera up anyways.
I don't think its BS .. you can have multiple circuits and have an isolated failure .. to Jerry Rig or to link one circuit to another just for the sake of power could cause a cascade effect that would bring other systems down... And even if it was a publicity stunt... So what... he pulled it off THis may not set well with the Union Shops though...
Those are some bright emergency lights!!! I think this is just to see if people like to stream the show on a webcam. Emergency lights are different from the stage lightning that is show. The show would of otherwise got cancel.
