old fella like me<br><br>Wow, how old are you now? 65? I didn't think people got really feeble until they hit their Nineties.<br><br>Not to worry though, I'm sure your son can help with those tiny screws.<br><br><br>M i c h a e l (OFI)
A shocking contrast to the horror of disassembling my PBG4 (or most other laptops for that matter). No doubt this is some sign of Apple going down the tubes nonetheless <br><br>It's certainly easy to see why Apple puts the battery the category of a part they won't support untrained users messing with. Look at the underside with those metal arms supporting the VERY thin battery pack. Clearly not meant to stand alone the way a thicker, less spread-out, heavily-walled quick-release battery is. (Err... look again when Gizmodo gets their OWN unit and can take it apart again.)<br><br>But you can be sure that by the time your year warranty is up someone will make 3rd-party batteries for it. Both internal (keeping it ultraportable as designed) and external (the option to add bulk and hours, and carry spares). For that matter someone will probably make a clamp-on (no cords) external battery WITH superdrive and/or USB hub.<br><br>Of note: Sony's list price for their TZ's battery is $200, on sale at Amazon for $164. ($300 for the high capacity, on sale for $200.) Boy, Apple sure is ripping people off with no other goal in sight <br><br>P.S. I like the new hinge design. Looks even more seamless--when open AND closed--than the current iBook/MacBook/Pro hinge system.<br><br>nagr[color:red]o</font color=red>mme<br><br>I require stroyent!<br>TeamMacOSX.com | MacClan.net
