Typing this right now from my new 13" 2.26!!! Got it at the NYC 14th st store and it seems they just arrived because I went there yesterday and they didn't have it.

I Love it already...I can't even hear that it is on.

Did you upgrade the HDD? If you didn't, I'm surprised it's not to ship within 24 hours.

A non-removable battery has nothing to do with whether the hard drive is user replaceable. The hard drive is replaceable on the 17" unibody MacBook Pro:
http://support.apple.com/kb/HT3419

Granted, it's not as easy as replacing the hard drive on the 1st gen. unibody 13" and 15" models, but it's still far easier than the PRE unibody MacBook Pros. I haven't seen any official word on whether the hard drive on the new 13" and 15" MacBooks are replaceable, but the 17" model demonstrates that its possible, likely to be similar, and the battery doesn't prevent the hard drive from being removed.

Im getting the base model with 250 gig hard drive at the end of this summer. Free iPod Touch as well me thinks

I LOVE the SD card slot and the battery, so glad they were added.

I spoke slightly too soon. Someone else found the link to the official manuals which clearly show that the hard drive is replaceable on all the new mid 2009 MacBook Pros:

Thanks for the link and I'm assuming that the guide to replace the 13" hard drive is the same as the 15", is that safe to assume?
