NOT still going.

Yesterday my laptop battery just crapped out. Like for real. :P First I unplugged it to take it into the other room, and it only ran for a minute before it shut down. And not an orderly "Please plug in your computer" kind of shut down - I mean, it make that little "NNRRRkk" noise and the screen went black.

Alas, alas. This was neither a new laptop nor a new battery when I got it. I've treated it well for the time that I've had it - I run it on battery power until drained at least once a month. But it has been a couple of years. I guess these things happen. It's unfortunate that it coincides with my budget changing to accomodate my gym membership. So, I am going to deal with having a non-mobile laptop for a little while, and hopefully mrpet can find me a good deal online after his fashion show is done. That is how I usually get electronics - his tech google fu is powerful. It looks like they don't cost enough to make getting a whole new laptop make sense. It'll have to happen sometime, though - my case has some cracks in it and the whole thing is getting out of date.

Do you know of a great place to get laptop batteries, especially for a Dell Latitude in the C series? If so, please leave a comment.
