Upgrading RAM and Batteries
For batteries, my advice would be to stick with the brand of the unit (Toshiba, in this case). Toshiba lists a 12 cell battery on their website under the "laptop accessories" section of www.toshiba.com. For the A60, the part number is listed as PA3382U-1BRS and costs $152.99. You can search google for another place to buy (perhaps where you bought the laptop) but be careful that you don't get a generic in place of the original (OEM).
With memory, Kingston and PNY are the aftermarket leaders and you can't go wrong with either. Kingston's website lists a whole slew of specific A60 models. Some with 256MB on board (not removable) and some with 512MB on board. So, a 512MB chip may give you 768MB or 1024MB depending on the exact model. Max memory seems to be either 1.25GB or 1.5GB depending on how much is onboard (and not removable). Installation is usually easy on any laptop and typically requires only a small screw driver to remove the memory cover on the bottom. The owners manual for the laptop likely gives the steps to add memory.
