what is the deal with the battery life on this thing? i can't use my laptop for more than 2 minutes before having to plug it into the wall again. the freedom of having a laptop is non-existent at this point. *frustrating*

You can test the battery by downloading the HP Battery Check program, the program is located here:
If that does not return an error, and your laptop is under warranty, consider having the laptop checked by a HP Authorized Service Center. The warranty can be checked here:

I have the same problem with the battery life on my HP dv6000. I have used the suggest battery check tool, but it failed to identify a problem. (software looks cool, but doesn't seem to do anything!) I have a problem with my battery holding a full charge (about 10 min then it's dead), it's just old. Most rechargeable batteries can only be charged up to about 1000 times before they fail hold a charge. This is the one thing about laptops you have to keep in mind, the battery will fail eventually and you will need a new one!
