Default List of higher end laptops with optical drive batteries?

i've been looking for laptops with secondary batteries in place of the optical drive but I can't find any. The only ones I find are for much older models such Dell Latitudes from who knows when. Can someone give me a list of high end laptops (800+) that have an option of having a secondary battery? thanks.

Optical drives? Optical means CD/DVD-roms.

These days, they do not make dual battery laptops. One battery is strong enough, to last ~3 hours of use.

Buy a modular bay laptop. Remove the drive. Put this in.

Dell Secondary Modular Bay Battery - Reviews & Prices @ Yahoo! Shopping

My Precision can do this as a hot swap.

Some laptops come with the option of an extended battery - but it isn't a second battery separate from the main battery. It's just a battery with more cells in it, it just costs more.

Dell and other brands do offer the second battery as long as the drive bay is modular. Like I posted above. I didn't know this till now but Google did good.
