I know it depends a lot on that processor, etc. that you have, but generally, with pretty much normal use, on average, how long would a 6 cell and a 12 cell lithium ion battery last?

Actually it depends all on the computer hardware and how it's used. I've seen 6 cells go for an hour and a half, and others last for 5. IMO a 6 cell shouldn't last less than an hour and a half to two hours.

The 12 cell should go for at least 2.5 hours minimum, but don't be surprised if the 6 cell only lasts for a little over an hour. If it is a very low power laptop, those values could be double.
