Just saw this netbook available for pre-order on the website. In the specs, it says it comes with a 6 cell battery? Can anyone confirm this is correct? I thought this model only came with a 3 cell battery? Here's the link to the product page: http://www.futureshop.ca/catalog/proddetail.asp?lo

As per HP's specifications for this unit it would appear that yes it does ship with a 6 cell battery. If you would like the full specification run down here is the link for the product on HP's website
Hope this helps you with your decision

Hi ! I was wondering if anybody else got a 3 cell battery instead of a 6 cell battery as listed in the specs for the hp mini 110 1033 cl refurbished at 249.99 with intel atom n270, 1gb ddr and 1.6ghz, 160 gb.....
the netbook release date was on november 9. got mine shipped quickly, on november 12.. however, i realized the battery that came in the box with the netbook is a 3 cell battery instead of a 6 cell battery as it should be.
called the customer service... should get back to me as soon as possible,
as i was the first one to '' report " this problem, the lady who got my call was of no help and couldnt tell me how the matter will be dealt with .. i mean, are they going to ship me a 6 cell battery and can i return the 3 cell in a store ? do i need to pay the shipping fee if i need to ship them back the 3 cell ? i guess no, as they made a mistake. la loi sur les consommateurs calls it de la mis représentation...
will they offer a discount ? i checked on futureshop.ca and the only hp 6 cell battery theyre selling is about 149$ !
if it happened to you too, you would be better check it out and report the problem !
as i am posting these lines, the hp mini 1033 refurbished specs still list the battery as a 6 cell battery !
( i printed the webpage and did a print screen, )
just need to check out the battery, much smaller than a 6 cell would be !
and it clearly says 3 cell battery on the little sticker attached to it !
mmm so i am still waiting for an email from the customer service, to find out what options are available to me !
really love the hp mini
dont know what the big problem was...
but such a good deal., 249$, and as they had something like more than 200 available, i am sure the problem hp had to fix was not such of a big deal
( we can think of the '' webcam '' issue, how they forgot in the factory to remove the teinted film in front of the integrated webcam lense... )
came really new, no scratches, nothing, didnt look like it has been manipulated before
was hesitating between this one and the msi black u100 available for 299$ at (competitor)...
will wait to find out whats going to happen with the 6 cell battery, and then ill make a decision
post a reply if you have received the wrong battery too !

and is it really a 6 cell battery ? like, is it bulky ?? how can i say ... when you put the netbook down, it never lays flat on a surface right, it always kinda stood at an angle because the bulky battery acts as a sort of stand? (inclined?)
mmmm that is weird, i thought it was a general mistake, never thought i would be the only one that got a 3 cell instead of a 6 cell battery !!!
so terrible, ure saying the part that shows between the screen and the keyboard has lots of scratches !!
theres a sort of plastic see-through clear film on this part of the battery on mine ...
and theres like, 2 little scratches, like, punctures, at the back of the netbook, just beside the windows authentification sticker and a hp sticker that states its a refurbished netbook with a 90 days warranty ...
did u get any recovery dvds or cds ??? didnt get anything ... but thats ok, ill back up my system on my external hard disk but still, would have been great to have a dvd, so i could have transferred recovery data from the dvd to a flash drive...
got the 2 year warranty ...

I bought this laptop.
The battery says '6-cell' on a dodgy-looking white sticker. It is bulky, just as you described - doesn't lay flat.
I'm wondering if there is a flat battery out there that I can buy for this model of netbook???
Oh, and my Windows Authentication sticker is all rubbed/scratched in the middle.
No recovery CD's were received.
