I've read that lots of people have touchpad problems often caused by a swollen battery. My touchpad is hard to click and does not respond efficiently. I took out the battery, and it has a slight concave shape to it. Swollen might be the description as it's not perfectly flat on both sides.

Here's my concern: buying a $130 batter for a 7-year old computer. Sure, it's a lot cheaper than a new machine, but I'd rather not toss $130.

Does anyone have a good way to test this "swollen battery" theory, or do I just pay the $130 and see if it solves the problem?
Is it a good idea to try and keep a 7-year old machine going?
