    I think I've heard in the past that you cannot replace the battery one new MacBook Pros. Is that true?

    Yes- the batteries in the Macbook Pros are non-user replaceable and non-removable.

    Apple can. They are not just so easy to replace anymore and replacement batteries are not sold

    Note the important phrase non-user replaceable. Apple can replace the battery if needed.

    I could have sworn I saw some MBP batteries for sale at the Apple store. I must be remembering wrong.

    You did, but those batteries are for the 5-6 hour batteries found in the 1st generation Unibody MBP's.

    Those batteries are user replaceable.

    btw - I swear I'm not following you around.:p
