I have just bought a sony vaio laptop CR Series, and i love it but i am already getting annoyed with the battery, How long should the battery go for, before switching off? Should i remove the battery when im using my laptop with the wire?
Dont really know what the best thing to do is.

Thanks

I always keep my laptop plugged in unless I have to. My battery doesnt last very long about an hour and a bit - I was told I have damaged the battery (thats why it doesnt last very long) because I always leave it plugged in. So im not sure what advice to give. This is on a Vaio too.

So its best to leave it plugged it or it isnt? Not really sure which is best.

I forgot to ask about the cd/dvd, When you press the button to open where the cd goes? does it open completly or just a bit and you have to pull it out?

Thanks

afaik, dvd/cd drives on laptops pop out just a bit when you press the eject button and you have to pull the tray out yourself to insert a disc (unless it's a slot load drive, which many newer laptops have nowadays).

I have the NR series and mine doesn't last long either. But I do have a cooler plugged in that robs some of my battery.

I try to keep mine plugged in as much as possible.
