A third-party nine-cell battery for my MacWind would provide me with 6.5 hours of continuous battery use. Do you think I should get it?
The MacWind I've been talking about lately weights in at about 3 pounds. That's with the 6-cell battery. It provides me with about 4.5 hours of juice per charge and I find that adequate. But then the debate is whether the weight is more important or adding a little weight but gain 50% of battery life is worth it.
Right now, I would have to choose between the standard 6-cell configuration or a 3rd party 9-cell battery. In time, I think we'll get more choices given that mobility is increasingly important to a lot of mobile warriors and the ability to work without worry about finding an outlet is very important.
live.com deal and eBay , I can get it for a good price now. I've included the link if you're interested. MSI forums has more info about it. I guess I will let those intrepid early adopters go through a couple of charge cycles before deciding.
