so, with the ones we have now I bought batteries for both of them when ordered and we have not needed them yet
Well, I just have to have the laptop plugged in with the power cord. But since I generally have the laptop on a tv tray and not on my lap anyway, that really isn't an issue. I've always charged it, pulled the cord out, when the battery runs low, plugged in back in. So I probably used it with it plugged in for a good chunk of time anyway. That said, I have noticed lately that the battery life is getting shorter & shorter. Doesn't even last an hour these days I don't think.
