The Compaq Presario CQ60-615DX uses a standard six-cell battery, which powered it for 2 hours 45 minutes on CNET Labs' demanding video playback battery drain test. That's about average for this size pack. In anecdotal testing, we didn't get much more than that; the laptop failed to top the 3-hour mark when running applications in Windows 7 and with the screen brightness turned all the way up.

HP backs the Presario CQ60-615DX with an industry-standard, one-year warranty. Toll-free telephone support is available 24-7 during your warranty period, and the HP support Web site includes real-time chat with a technical support representative. If you want to troubleshoot problems yourself, you can search through the site's thorough FAQ database. While retail shops are happy to sell you an in-store extended warranty, they are often expensive and hard to use, so we don't recommend them.
