    Not much! Buy new battery cells instead and ignore the "do not open" warning sticker on your stock battery.

    Win win! :laugh:

    Or you can go to PC world or something and ask for some of their batteries from their recyling thingy, and then find the good cells out the batteries and get FREE new battery : ]

    You can even bodge together a huge battery yourself :laugh:

    google 'Laptop Battery' and see for yourselfs.

    you could re-build your old battry like you suggested pantha but theres a lot of work that goes into it and you NEED to know where to get new cells from. I dont even know how much they cost

    Linux is good for lower system requirements and since it doesn't really have games it works out good for netbooks that cant really play games.

    As for batteries on ebay the sell a lot of cheap Chinese fake batteries, for a camcorder you can pay up to £200 for a battery for a real one but a China one just £20 inc postage lol. They make decent spares.

    EDIT: Just messin' about with the Sega Master System today, playing Hang-On and The Ninja.

    1gb built in + 1066mhz 2GB corsair Stick
    Sierra 8775 WWLAN
    Atheros WIFI or Broadcom WIFI+Bluetooth
