[kwlug-disc] OT: Replacement notebook batteries?

I did see this post some days ago, so I think the list is flowing 

I did poke about myself for you, but had no good answers - so didn't 
reply. [I agree, and from my own experience, be it laptops, cordless 
phones, pda's, or whatever - battery prices are just stupid. Some have 
commented in the past that it's cheaper on an old laptop to go buy 
another refurb laptop than buy a replacement battery. <ludicrous> The 
pro of getting the battery is not having to refactor your environment. 
The con is you could take advantage of updated technology.]
