If anyone has any suggestions I appreciate it. I recived my 1012 a few days ago. I have the 6-cell battery. When I booted it up after a full charge, battery said "9 hours (100%) remaining. Everything is cool at this point. I upgraded my RAM yesterday to 2GB from the standard 1GB. Now I boot up my mini and it says "5 hours, 45 minutes (99%) remaining. After a few minutes of use, like right now as I'm typing this, it says "8 hours, 14 minutes (94%) remaining. It just seems I'm getting flaky info about my battery now. Do I need to be concernrd about this? And also, does it have anything to do with the RAM upgrade I did yesterday? Thanks for your opinion(s) on this. By the way, this forum rocks!!!!
