What do you know about your Laptop Battery?

Every laptop has a certain battery life and we notice that down the line after some months of usage, battery life reduces and sometimes dies out and some users claim that the laptop brand is not good because of that.

HP’s TouchPad to be returned to factory: Bad sales…Huh

Best Buy¬† is sitting on more than 200,000 unsold TouchPads, and is threatening to send them back to HP. Arik Hesseldahl at AllThingsD reports that Best Buy ordered 270,000 of the HP tablets, which launched last month to mediocre reviews. So far, it’s sold only 25,000.
