This is a new refurbished T42, with a new battery from the factory, but it only lasts about 2 hours instead of 6-7.
I've never seen a T4x with a 9 cell battery run for 6-7 hours under any circumstances, so your expectation is somewhat unrealistic in that respect, IMO.However something is clearly not right about the battery if it is supposedly new and only accepting a ~50% charge. You can certainly do a battery refresh cycle using the ThinkPad Power Manager utility under Windows XP/Vista, but whether this would fix the problem or not is unclear until you actually do it.
