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.
