Windows 7 Ultimate x64

No problem with keeping it on the charger, but I do recommend unplugging it and letting the battery drain on a regular basis. I use a Dell Latitude E6400 at work, and it sits in a dock all day...thus charges the entire day. I am required by my job to take it home on a daily basis in case I have to work remotely or log in after hours. Most of the time I run on battery at home. I've got a 9 cell battery and when brand new it lasted over 5-6 hours. It's now about 2.5 years old and is lasting about 3-4 hours per it's help up very well. Usually these batteries stop holding a charge well between 1-2 years and often have to be replaced around the 2 year mark if you use batteries for any length of time.

Thanks for the answer everyone. I guess that's all I wanted to know about this battery on a laptop.

Help with RAM and laptop question please
Ok, I'm thinking about adding more Memory to my laptop. I have no idea what to look for. Does basically any memory work with any laptop, or is there specific memory cards for specific laptops? In either case, what would you guys recommend for a Toshiba Satellite A215-S4757?
