    It really depends what you are doing.

    And don't charge it often because it ruins the battery. Let the battery run out before you charge it to make the battery more efficient.

    Well, at the moment i have just been using it for gaming and in my opinion the battery hasn't lasted as long as it should.

    I disagreed, I have not had it die on me once. I do a bad thing though and charge it all the time, I have a charger at work and one at home, and one in the car. But i have yet to have a problem. Once the battery goes out i was looking and they are not really that expensive. I was told when i bought it that it would only last 3 hours, I have to say, it's lasted over three hours for me.

    nope sorry dude but..
    --Avoid frequent full discharges because this puts additional strain on the battery. Several partial discharges with frequent recharges are better for lithium-ion than one deep one. Recharging a partially charged lithium-ion does not cause harm because there is no memory. (In this respect, lithium-ion differs from nickel-based batteries.) Short battery life in a laptop is mainly cause by heat rather than charge / discharge patterns.--
