ConsTerrible battery

I inherited, rather than bought, the HP Compaq NX7400 - my mother had quickly replaced it with a different machine, and this one was left spare. It had been used not more than five times before I received it. Look and feel ------------------- The design is, I think, typical of laptops. One reason...

I bought this laptop for work and used every weekday for about 15 months. I was delighted with it - it looks great and is pretty quick running XP with many applications at once (I purchased 2Gb) RAM. Also it has a lot of features like firewire that are hard to find on a decent laptop. But after 12 months the battery held about 5 mins of charge. I did buy a replacement battery as I often use the laptop on the move. But then, another 3 months or so later - the laptop stopped charging from the AC (and it wasnt the charger I tried a new one). This made the laptop useless since no external charger is sold for batteries of this model. I was out of warranty and after a chat to HP technical support the conclusion was that I basically could bin it or send it away for a repair (hundreds of pounds for a 600 pound laptop). No thanks. So afterall that, a disappointment.

I've had the nx7400 with a 2.0gig dual core pentium (for the faster cache) for the best part of 2 years now and find it fulfills all my requirements, bar one which is built in wireless n+ standard. After 2 years the fan is starting to get more noisy, and the trackpad button has started to stick a bit, but thats more down to my environment than the laptops fault...
