X300 Battery Question

I have an X300, but opted for the "standard" battery plus an additional battery in the DVD slot. What the salesperson did not know was whether the "enhanced battery" option added to the exterior dimensions of the X300 (as it does with the X61 I have).  If the exterior dimensions were the same I would have opted for the enhanced battery and gone with the DVD in the DVD slot.  Anyone know the answer to this?

Re: X300 Battery Question

the 6-cell main battery adds thickness to the front of the X300 and isn't flush like the 3-cell main.

Re: X300 Battery Question

jtimouri, welcome to the forum,
The main X300 battery sits under the palmrest. With the standard battery the keyboard slants downwards a little to the front, with the enhanced battery it sits level. The "footprint" is exactly the same.
