    Hi, I have 2 issues with my Dell Latitude D600:

    1. Battery lasts for 10 minutes before needing recharge - can someone suggest a brand of long lasting battery that I can replace mine with?

    2. Laptop constantly writing to disk - sometimes when I open the laptop, it wakes from hibernation and takes a long time before the laptop reponses (because it is furiously writing to disk); other times, I am typing on a document and it will take forever for the laptop to respond, again, because it is writing to disk
    a. Can upping the RAM help (it currently has 512mb)? Should I buy DELL RAM? Any suggestions for reliable RAM for my laptop?
    b. Or, is the disk signalling that it is near its final leg?
