Not sure of your preference but if you get the 9 cell battery with a wide screen laptop, it sticks out a lot - about 2 inches.  The letterbox size laptop does not sticks out about 1 inch.  Then add the ultrabay battery and you will have near 10 hours of life depending on usage.  This will probably go over 5lb a little bit, but not much. 

A better bet might be the 14.1 inch wide with the 6 cell battery and advanced ultra bay battery, which should get you about 6 hours on conservative system settings - this will be around 5lb.

The 9 cell battery fits in 15,4 wides, the only style of T and R it doesn't fit are the 14,1 wides.
