Is a 12-cell netbook batttery a good deal?

I need a replacement battery for my Asus 1000HE netbook. I've been looking on Ebay, and it looks like they have some 12-cell batteries, whereas the original I got was (I think) 6. Does anybody have one of these, to know whether they're a good deal, how much bulk they add to the computer, etc?

Worth buying a netbook if no home wireless network?

Clueless noob here who's never owned any mobile eq, not even a cell phone. Have 2 aging PCs @ home, not networked. Just been offered an excellent deal on a netbook, and envision sitting anywhere in my house using it instead of sharing desktops w my kids. I live in a major metropolitan area; with a netbook, will I likely get internet wherever I go? Or do I have to (1) set up a home wireless network and (2) use the netbook only @ coffee shops?
