None of the majors cover batteries in notebook PCs for more than a year,
even with 3- or 4-year warranties on the rest of the system - that goes for
Dell, IBM, Toshiba, HPaq, and eMachines.

That's a pretty good price for a battery - you may find them slightly
cheaper elsewhere, but pay attention to age - lithium batteries suffer from
age as much as use, and with a lifespan of 18 months-2 years or so, a
6-month old battery may have as much as a third if its life used up before
you even install it.
