Collecting years from now - Internal Battery impact?
What will happen going forward when the collectible items become the iPad, iPhone, touch , Air, Retina Pros, etc, all sealed units with internal batteries.
Apple will no longer sell replacement batteries, sure you can run them on AC power, but will the batteries start to expand, leak, etc?
Will internal batteries become a bigger problem than leaking capacitors?

iDevices & glued together laptops were designed as throw aways.
The New Apple doesn't care about anything but selling more product. They're simply advancing the tendencies of Americans in particular, to consume & buy, buy, buy.

Disposable they may be, but they're still more durable than most other similar products. My original 2006 MacBook Pro is still my primary laptop. My original 2006 MacBook is still perfectly functional. 2007 iPhone works fine (although now it is used as a "glorified iPod touch" rather than a cell phone in daily use.)
