Yeah, the $199 doesn't seem that bad to me for a very high capacity battery for Apple 'showcase' computer right now.

The retina display will gradually make its way down to the other models. I remember all the gnashing of teeth with the internal battery on the unibodies, but I think the unibodies have the best overall power design- great battery life, 1000+ charge lifecycle, user replaceable (just not in the field).

I suspect newer iterations will have a more elegant servicing solution than a glued in battery, but I'd be amazed if Apple lower their price for replacement.

Ya' pays ya' money, ya' takes ya' choice.
