How/why does a battery affect laptop performance?
After some quick googling, I came across this , where many people had success by removing the battery. I figured this couldn't hurt to try, so I removed the battery (it was already dead; only acting as a weak UPS). Upon a reboot, there was no more lag when typing.
Why did this happen? I always thought the battery did not affect the performance of a computer. Am I wrong or is this example just a random miracle?
