HP / Compaq laptops - Multibay battery?
Posted on 2009-06-28
Hey there experts - perhaps one of you can save me some time. A co-worker asked me to help pick out a laptop for his daughter that is about to go to college. The first thing I thought about was finding one that had stellar battery life.
With this in mind, I wandered over to the HP website (sorry, HP guy here) and started to look at business class machines that would accept a "multi-bay" battery. when on the road, I found that battery life is king and when I was using HP NC's and EVO's I would pull the optical drive out and pop in a spare battery. This gave some stellar batter life!
Now the question...
I was reviewing the current HP line up and it seems they have abandoned the removable multibay optical drive and the only extended life battery packs available are the ones that snap to the bottom or extend out the back like a baluga whales bulbuous head <spelling>?
Am I missing something or has HP/Compag done away with the internal multibay setup?
If so, does anyone else offer something like this?
