Thanks for the link. I know that the battery life will be shorter with the x700, but the 12 cell should be around 5 hours, am I wrong?
I'm going to do this:
-Instead of buyin 1GB DDR (2x512) from HPshopping, I'll buy only a 256MB and an extra 1GB from newegg.com, this way I'll save around 90 bucks.
-With those 90dlls plus another 50 more...I'll get from HP one 6 cell AND one 12 cell.
This way I should get around 7 hours of battery life. In May, my classmates and I are going to visit a Nuclear Power Plant, it is located in Laguna Verde, Veracruz (the only one we have in Mexico). We will be traveling on bus and it will take us 22 hours to get there. I think 7 hours of battery life will help a little with the trip. Remember that it is 22 hours to go over there, and 22 to get back.
But now I have a question: I know that the memory of the dv4000 is DDR2, but is it 400MHz or 533MHz??? Which one should I buy??? I'm looking for a Kingston on newegg.com, and they cost pretty much the same.
