Thumbs down Bad News.... - 03-17-2010, 08:04 PM

Ahhh ok so here it goes, so Ive had my 1012 for about 2 weeks now. I installed windows 7 Prof, D2, uploaded my stuff music and such. Im currently on vacation in florida and have been getting about 3 hours of battery time. Ive played with the power setting and still the most i get is 3hours.... So I called dell and tried to get a replacement battery and the kept telling me that my 1012 has a 3-cell battery when i know that i have a 6-cell battery. So now im returning it . Im thinking that im just going to reorder another 1012, cause i really like it, but this time with the HD card

What is printed on the label on the battery?

FWIW I really don't like Dell's home user support - on the other hand their business sales/support people are very good
