I am new to the world of laptops. I just bought an HP Pavilion with the new Windows Vista. The battery lasts less than 2 hours before I need to charge it. Is this average? Can I purchase a spare battery that would last longer? Is it better to use the battery all of the way down before charging? I''ve been plugging it in when I am at home...is that going to hurt the battery?
