Will the new 7 hour battery work in my MacBook Alu Uni 13"?
...that would be amazing!
No. That battery is integrated in the new 13" Unibody Macbook Pros, and it is not user replaceable and likely very different than the batteries in the current UniMBs.
Handy with a soldering iron and tearing your logic board up?
As said above, not going to happen.
LMAO at ^^^^^Question HAHAHA
Funny (though this is probably just a fluke), I bought my macbook aluminum yesterday, and while I had airport and bluetooth off, it told me I had 7 and a half hours left while brightness was half way. Though I'm assuming the new ones will be roughly 7 with airport on.
That 7 hours is under Apple's secret testing procedures
I get ~3.5-4 with my UMB 2.0ghz, with the rated "5 hour" battery. I'd wager 5hrs will be the norm (screen 1/2 or more up, wifi on, actively being used) with the new built-in unit.
I highly doubt it will be soldered. You probably pull off the back panel and unplug it.
True, but you'll still have to solder on new contact points and what not.
I've read some rumors that it may be upgradeable via your local Apple store genius or if you send it in... Think about it, if your current UMB battery dies, computer isn't dead... Apple must have a way to swap the batteries out pretty easily. I don't see any physical differences between the new UMB Pro or the old UMB.
Just got my fingers crossed I guess?
Physical differences: Port layout/sd slot/removal of one audio jack
That's really it from what we've seen so far. The inside could have been shuffled around too to make room for the battery, but we won't know until ifixit or somebody else does a tear-down.
If the current UMB battery dies, you buy a new one (seeing how it's removable) If it dies on the 13" UMBP, they disconnect it's contacts and attach a new one.
why would they make it built-in? ...is there a strategic engineering with the new lithium polymer to not be removable?
My MacBook is extinct

may ur macbook rest in pieces.....
Secret? In the past they've clearly been posted on the site. Have you looked again? I'll see if I can grab them real quick.
Testing conducted by Apple in May 2009 using preproduction 2.8GHz Intel Core 2 Duo–based MacBook Pro units with a Better Battery Life setting. Battery life depends on configuration and use. See www.apple.com/batteries for more information. The wireless productivity test measures battery life by wirelessly browsing various websites and editing text in a word processing document with display brightness set to 50%
That was hard.
It was sarcasm...sorry, I should have thrown a in there or something.
