    Hi, all!

    I wish to purchase an HP dv5000t series laptop with a 12 Cell Li-Ion battery, but I saw a diagram on the HP site which showed a bulky mass at the back of the laptop, compared to a 6 cell which did not have this. It seems that such a laptop will not be able to sit flat on a desk.

    Does anybody know from experience if this will be the case? If so, how bad of an angle is it? Will it interfere with normal use, etc?

    Thanks! Your help is appreciated. :)

    If HP sells the battery with the laptop then it'll work. While it may not sit flat that isn't a problem.

    Oh, I'm sure it will work perfectly fine. I was just wondering about the angle, that's all, but thanks for your reply!
