Having to live with a laptop that discharges much sooner than it should is painful because it takes all the convenience of a laptop away. Don't believe that you have to buy a new laptop to remedy that problem. A battery replacement is a simple task on most laptops, the only obstacle being a latch or screw. After that it's as easy as pulling the old one out and putting the new one in. Now you'll be able to take your laptop to anywhere you want like school, a coffee shop, or the outdoors without running out of battery at an untimely moment.
