    I'd just like to hear some predictions on whether or not it will include removable HD and RAM for upgrade ?

    Nobody knows. I don't know why they would make either non-removable though; the Macbook is not a Macbook Air.

    Oh I wouldn't understand either, it's just that the article I read spoke about not having the ability to remove it.

    I'm sure they'll make it more difficult to remove on future models.

    It may be removable, but very difficult to replace.

    In the newest iMacs the hard drives have 3 pin hard drive adapters instead of the regular 4 pin making it very hard for people who don't work at an apple factory or store replace it themselves, there is also something implemented in the BIOS to stop people from replacing the hard drive themselves; this results in a bricking of the iMac
