The Asus Eee PC 1008P Karim Rashid Edition is an ultrathin netbook that’s pretty much the same shape and size as the Eee PC 1008HA. But while you can’t easily replace the battery on the Eee PC 1008HA, the 1008P has a battery door that lets you remove the battery and swap it out for a replacement. And it looks like Asus will be shipping the netbook with two 3 cell batteries in at least a few countries.
Swapping out batteries in the middle of a session isn’t exactly convenient. But it is one way to double your computing time. And since Asus says the Eee PC 1008P gets up to 5.5 hours of run time on a single battery, that theoretically means you could use the netbook for up to 11 hours without stopping to charge. Of course, battery estimates are usually inflated, but 8 or 9 hours doesn’t seem unreasonable.
