I have had this AW 17 R4 laptop for around 5 or 6 years and it does great. I have an issue with the battery not charging though, I had a local Comp shop replace the battery with an OEM one and it still slowely drained (While plugged in) to no charge. I can run it while plugged in, but I get a battery warning and lat time (Last year) it eventually stopped working. The cord light comes on and it runns on the charger, so it doesn't seem like a power problem from the charger.
Any suggestions? I realy like this laptop and cannot afford to replace it.
