i've read that dell machines wont take replacement batteries but i see people on ebay with 10s of thousands of happy customers...so they must work

anything i have to watch out for regarding compatibility etc? or buying advice..30 bucks vs over 100 sounds too good to be true

Read the reviews and go for it!

(With eBay there is always a slight risk involved).

i've been reading a bit more....apparently dell batteries have tamper stuff in them but i guess the off names will work...and i confirmed the dell price is 135...ugh

$135? Wow!

Buy an eBay battery or buy a used Dell and salvage the battery! Another option is to leave things as-is and get a dock station and use the laptop in that mode.
