Ok, so I received my new laptop today. It was here waiting for me when I got into work today. I waited until lunchtime to open it up and see what was inside. I pulled out a battery, and then a nice looking notebook. But where does the battery go? Seems Ive been on hold now and dealing with Dell people for more than an hour now... go figure.
No resolution yet. I did learn though that the additional battery will fit into the same console that the dvd/cd rom drive is. That you would have to remove the cd/dvd drive to use the spare battery - not sure how thrilled with this I am. I should have done more homework on it, but the operating system was fabulous, and is fabulous enough that I may just have to deal with it. I do enjoy watching movies while Im on an airplane or what not. The other laptop we have holds two batteries side by side and allows you to use the cd/dvd rom instead of the floppy disk drive. This is much preferable to me.
Maybe I am stubborn? Ive been transfered to more people in this last hour and a half now than I would like to admit.
My advice is to verify exactly how it works before you buy. When you are on the phone talking with someone while ordering, and looking at it on the computer - well maybe I just missed something, but I was sure that I had all of the information.
Anyhow... I guess it doesnt really matter much, but satisfaction doesnt seem to be guaranteed this time.
