10-cell battery for EEE PC 901- function over form

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.
