Apple is expected to unveil a new 17" unibody MacBook Pro at MacWorld with a built in super slim battery pack, according to 9to5mac.

Their Asian sources tell them that the super slim battery pack for the 17 inch MacBook Pros will last much longer than current models and will not be removable. It is unsure how Apple will deal with batteries that deteriorate after time.

Additionally 9to5mac believes that the 13 inch MacBook Plastic will be phased out with the price of the Unibody MacBook moving closer to the $1000 price point.

I actually don't give a shit what they do, all i know is it'll be a better machine than the MBP i have now, lets hope the battery doesn't get so hot!

What does it matter if the battery is replaceable? I've used laptops for more than 10 years, and I have never ever replaced the battery. If the battery dies then chances are that the computer is so old it's useless anyway. If not, it should be covered by the warranty.

Hey, imagine if you were in the middle of nowhere, are going to present and your MBP just ran out of juice. Bummer if the battery is irreplaceable. We're talking about modularity — function over form.

When are you ever so far out in the middle of nowhere that there's not a single power socket within a couple of feet???
