HP 311 @ 1.66ghz, 7200 RPM 160HD
After careful consideration (I'm not a grub bootloader fan btw lol) I downloaded Linux Mint after hearing such good things about it. I have it dualbooting with Windows XP which Streetfighter IV plays beautifully btw I have a few concerns why is it that I can install the same version on an ACER and see the battery remaining TIME but when it's installed on mine I can't? It the same thing with XP actually.
I once had a hacked version of XP and the battery time would display on the other computers battery but never my 311. Is there some sort of option I can hit in Linux to enable this feature because I've been unable to find it. I would love to test the battery life difference in this compareed to XP. I'm a student and frankly XP gets about 3.30hrs to 4.00 tops with battery life and the 4 is without me really using it lol.
Also one last time... I've had this computer maybe a little over 2 months.... am I the only one whose battery goes from 100% to 94% after taking it off the charger??? It seems like it takes a while to get off of 100% but in actually it's still draining and just drops straight to 94% I have yet to ever see my computer display 99,98,97,96, or 95% from a full charge... if I'm the only one then maybe I have a bad battery or something.... hmmm
Sorry for the long story lol.... (English Major).....
