Well, thank you very much, sir. I copy/pasted them myself.

I eventually found a compatible battery for it on eBay but your mileage may vary.
This was actually an issue I was concerned about. I downgraded from a 12 cell batter to a high capacity 6 cell because the Indian man on the telephone told me the 12 cell sticks out of the bottom of the unit 1 inch or more. That sounded slightly retarded to me, so I opted for the flush 6 cell battery. I'll have to see how much it would be to get a spare or two, but I'm pretty sure I'll invest in that as it seems it will affect me some point in my laptops lifespan.
I'm only here to remind Brad to take his protein pills daily.
