Smile New to the site... - 07-27-2009, 05:17 AM

I am new to the site, and I purchased a Dell Mini 10V last month june 2009, and I hope i can get help from other Dell Mini owners about the low battery usage on mine. I love it because it's my favorite color pink, but the battery usage is bugging me.

I just ordered the new dell mini 10v with the upgraded N280 processor. And the extended 6 cell battery I am hoping that I get good battery life out of it because I am using it for school purposes and I will have classes from 8 am to 3:50 pm.

How long is low battery usage? I get about 6 hours or so on my 6-cell battery and it was refurbished. I'd assume you should get a good 3 hours on the 3 cell or 6 on the 6 cell.
