When you take a look at the new 10-cell battery for the EEE PC 901 you should go back and also take a look at Kevin’s post about form over function on netbooks.  That certainly applies to this battery which is the biggest honking battery you’ll ever see on a netbook.  Sure, this battery will provide 10 – 14 hours of battery life but at what cost in form?  I still wish that OEMs would offer cheap extra batteries for netbooks which makes a lot more sense to me.  Just throw an extra one in your bag and be done with it.  Or, carry a battery like this attached to your netbook and show the world how strong your arms are.  Defeats the purpose of a lightweight netbook if you ask me.

  2. this is 1 of the FAR more clever designs if you ask me. it’s much better than those other EEE batteries that ive seen.

    it’s just not meant for the 900, look at it on the 1000 before you judge. it looks like it was made for it.

  3. Does anyone actually know how much it weighs? Most netbooks don’t look all that pretty anyway, so a big-ass battery like this shouldn’t matter that much. I mean, if you can go a full day without even having to think about recharging, that’s worth a lot.

    So if the weight isn’t all that bad, I see no reason not to like this battery. Right?
