As far as your original question saying a battery is 6 cell is basically meaningless. That only time that number matters is when you are comparing batteries of identical kinds. For example, if you were buying a specific Dell, the accessories and options may list a 6 cell battery and a 9 cell battery. Then 9 cell, in theory, would last 50% longer than the 6 cell. The number of cells has no corelation to the amount of itme, as that varies on hardware, usage, etc.
That is interesting. I was not aware that laptops didn't have SATA connections standard.

Now they do. You seemed to be discussing a previously owned laptop when it switched to SSDs. If it was an older laptop using IDE drives, then a typical SSD wouldn't work. But, if this is going in a new laptop, purchased new, you'd have no worries.

Laptop Battery Health Question
I was wondering if it is better to keep your laptop always plugged in, or to plug it in only when the battery is dead/almost dead. Would your battery last longer if you pugged it in only when necessary or constantly? Thanks
