at least the hard drive and battery looks user replaceable. Take four screws off the bottom, at it looks like this is what you find... (captured from keynote address video) see the battery looks like it pops off the posts with connector at bottom right. probably a non-soldered connector. that is why the battery is replaceable at the apple store. see the ata 1.8 inch hard drive in upper left probably has a mini ata connector. probably could exchange for same form factor hard drive. probably could exchange the ata hard drive for SSD when they are cheaper in the future. you can now buy a 32gb SSD 1.8 inch drive made by samsung at Newgg.com for about $400.... This could be enough to run Lepard and business stuff. http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16820147021 what do you think??? just my thoughts. certainly lot easier looking than getting at the MBP hard drive!!! i am waiting eagerly for my MBA (ordered on announce date) and probably will upgrade to SSD when they are much cheaper in six to nine month.
