There are just a few days left until Macworld and Apple rumors are certainly not in limited stock. The latest word from the rumor mill is that Apple is going to be announcing the unibody Macbook Pro 17″ we’ve all been waiting for since the refresh of the 15″ version and the 13″ MacBook. It’s pretty obvious that that would have been the next move for Apple in its notebook line, but what’s a little shocking is that the rumor also says the battery will not be user-replaceable. Oy vey. If this is true a lot of people will definitely be upset, especially considering how abysmal the battery performace is in Apple’s latest laptops. When we buy expensive things, we always have longevity in mind – even if we’re the type that constantly buys the latest and greatest. While the rumored internal battery, like the iPod or iPhone, is said to be more powerful than previous MacBooks, there is still no excuse for it. What if there is some sort of failure? Do you have to go out of your way to have your lappy repaired at an Apple Store or go through the inconvenience of sending your computer in? Let’s hope that part of the rumor stays a rumor and that Apple doesn’t disappoint in this department.
