What happened to your original one?
I purchased without battery in usa. transporting with battery/hdd has been banned.
Due to the age I think you will either have to bite the bullet or keep an eye out.
If you want to balance the machine you could use something to fill the gap and use double sided tape to keep it in place for now.
there are older laptops than this, and they are available in the battery market. and nowhere to be found on this notebook, even the use of, or the dead.
may be someone of the users does not need dead battery and he wants to sell it. I'll buy it
Most other laptops use a 'generic' shape and can be interchanged, even across brands. Hence there's a bigger demand for replacements. This model's battery is pretty much unique and, stranger still, uses lithium polymer pouch type cells, not standard li-ion 18650 cilinder type. That's something you expect to see with ultrabooks and Apples, not gaming laptops or DTRs, since they're more expensive, tend to bulge (hydrogen build-up) and there's no 'slimness' goal to achieve.
Either try checking similar-era Clevos, like the W870CU, to broaden the search or, like Meaker suggested, a diy mod. A block of polystyrene would be easily cut to size and might be wrapped/covered in black electrical tape. Just make sure to have it extend somewhat, taking the height of the absent rubber foot into account.
I hope that someone battery still has
Yeah my battery burned off, literally doesn't work at all.
Currently in a position of saving up some money and maybe installing kizwan's unlocked BIOS, getting a bigger PSU (I have one laying around w/ 220W) buying a 920XM along my 6970M (which is holding up nicely).
And then just going ham
The 7970M requires a heatsink fit (modification), and flash.
Don't know about the others.
Also a 920XM or 940XM (maybe too expensive, not worth in my eyes) would be nice to have installed too, so your GPU isn't a magical little box.
On top of that you'd need a larger PSU.
As above, it will be a fair bit more work to get it running up another level. Balance that cost against a new machine of course too.
Yes that is the issue.
Literally cheaper buying a new or used new workstation with 1½-2x the power.
Nostalgia is expensive...
