Hmm, maybe the extra battery adds too much cost and weight for the marketing folks....after all, thin and light is "in", right?

The Microsoft Surface Book uses this approach, with crappy battery life without keyboard (<4 hours), but excellent battery life with it (and some models also have a GPU in the tablet). Also, the Lenovo Helix 2 and Dell Venue Pro had keyboards with batteries available (and supposedly some Helix 2 models have the tipping problem).
