Damn, looks like I'll just be saving up for awhile for a new macbook instead of a mini :-(.

lol one last thing 17" macbook pro ... there goes all these netbook rumors or tablet or ipod touch rumors. or mini for that matter haha

And this is why, time and time again, people need to stop expecting Apple to announce the world at Macworld. Rumors are just that... Rumors. What was the point of a netbook, or an iPhone nano or anything like that?

Any mention if the 17'' MacBook Pro uses that non-removable silver-nitrate battery?

It's supposed to last 8 hours and be good for 1000 charges - dunno if it's silver-nitrate or removable (but probably not).

"We've designed a battery that will last 8 hours on a charge, and can be charged 1000 times..." "The key to building a longer battery is making it bigger... the challenge is where to find the space to put it... in a removable battery there's a lot of wasted space."

Only 1000 times.....

So 1000 charges and non-removable.

Charge it once a day, 5 days a week, 50 weeks a year.

Wonder what that will cost to replace in four years.

I'd gladly take a removeable battery with less life that offered more charges.

most notebook batteries are dead by 300-400 charges (not dead but they last less than 1.5hrs)

Of course, the only problem with all this is... How often does one go 8+ hours on their notebook without having it plugged into an AC adapter? As I've said before, this is great, but all it really does is let Apple now charge you another $99+ for a battery replacement program.

Thats what all rechargeable batteries are rated. ~1000 charges. But the non-removable aspect of this one is what hurts it.
