BIOS A04 is supposed to fix the estimation, because it properly reports the actual size of the battery.

I have the same heat problem, but the heat from mine is pretty hot, enough to where its too much to touch. I can't remember, are you supposed to hear the fan...or did you with XP or Ubuntu? I only had the laptop 1 day before putting OSX on it. Im worried my fan isnt working at all right now because of how hot its getting. Thanks!

There is no fan in the Dell Mini, which makes it hard to hear.
