    Does anyone know offhand if the 6-cell battery for the c-140x is flush with the bottom of the computer? After poking around on gateway's site it looks like the 8-cell protrudes downwards, propping the computer up at a permanent slight angle. Is this the case?

    The 8 cell does have a protrusion, although it most certainly provides a more comfortable angle for using the keyboard, and, more importantly, it allows for proper ventilation (the main fan is on the bottom and blows air into the case and out through the right side). I do not know anything about the 6 cell battery, although I know that if you intend to do anything intense with this system, you'll probably want the extra power of the 8 cell, possibly even the 12 cell, although a 6 cell primary coupled with the 6 cell modular should do the trick.
