Specs: Microsoft Windows XP Home Edition, 1.729 GHz / 511 MB
Have the above battery with 53wh capacity and 4800mAH, do I have to buy exact same product? ie, same model, capacity, etc... Also, not sure whether it's 6 or 9 cell.

Be sure Dell offers this choice. The main thing is it is the correct voltage and correct chemistry. (say Li-ion or Ni-cad or such).

Bigger batteries in term of power can be normally used but may need a different cover in rare cases. Be sure Dell offers the exact product as an option. Don't rely on battery sales places.

The number of cells determines the output voltage, so go by the voltage specs.

Thx all. 6600mah appears to give twice the battery time.
