@Unicorn: Obviously it isn't a good idea, especially from a technical point of view or a view where preservation is involved (I'm a technician myself). But In terms of profit margins? They're rolling in cash. That is until a large defect with a certain component is found. Then they'll be crying. It's still a double edged sword to be honest. It reduces the out of door cost for apple (which somehow doesn't trickle down to the consumer...take that reagan!) But on the other hand maintainence, troubleshooting and repairing these machines are prohibitively expensive. What is one to do? This is that out of the world though. But I am truly interested to see how battery life for this thing will be in 2-4 years. Because $3k is a large investment that should last at least that long.
