I have not dealt with this company, but they may have what you are looking for.

My guess (from searching) is that you won't find one.

This is (what I consider) a rather old laptop...and I suspect that vendors no longer make batteries for it.

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&q=T...acement+battery

Even if it was available, from what I see the cost would be approximately 1/3 to 1/4 of what a much newer/better laptop would be.

Sorry.

Louis

Actually, there is no listed member #1 or #2 any more.
Suffice it to say they do exist still but under different Nicks and numbers.

BTW - did you call the SimpleMicro 1-888 number listed and ask about your Model?

Good luck with the Ebay.

I just called and they don't even have chargers for your model now. Plus the shipping and VAT would kill you?
I wasn't paying attention to see you're in the UK.
