I ordered it this morning, as mentioned in my post in the 6-cell battery thread.

I'll keep you folks posted. If it blows up, I guess I can't sue the no-name vendor, but they probably use the same cells as everyone else anyway...
Ordered: black 8/19 for $365; 9/23 ETA -> 10/21 ETA -> arrived 10/10
Installed: 2GB RAM, 320GB drive, BT module from hellowifi
Accessories: 6-cell battery, 11.1" ZeroShockIII case + external slim DVDRW

I would rather pay extra for a genuine battery. Are there any yet?

If you really want OEM go to this post: http://www.s10lenovo.com/viewtopic.php?f=10&t=361&st=0&sk=t&sd=a&start=90#p6073.

I point out that you can get the black ones from Lenovo Parts for $95.50 (Part # 42T4589 ) which is better than going through the Online Store where the same battery is $129 :roll:

I didn't look up the part number for a white battery, but it's probably available now also. The black shows it's in stock at this moment, but of course YMMV.....
