It might be a stupid question...pertaining to new powerbooks...and ibooks
Hey I've got a question about the previous generation Powerbooks (15inch, 1.67ghz without the HD display) vs. the new generation (15" 1.67ghz with HD). What makes the battery life better in the new powerbooks? Is it a better battery? Or something new in the hardware (like something on the motherboard?). Also...if it's just a better battery...would a battery from the current generation PB work in a previous generation PB?
Also, I have another question pertaining to ibooks...how do I check how many of the cells are alive in the battery? One of my friends said there's a way to check how many cells are there...like the unit will say 4450/4500 or something like that....Does anyone know what I'm talking about?
Anybody tried non_OEM batteries such as these? I need a new battery for my PowerBook G4 12 inch. I downloaded the utility, and it's gone through 600 cycles, so it's almost toast (down to an hour, and doesn't warn me before crapping out now) . . .
