Yep, did it myself. It's pretty easy. Pop out the battery, unscrew a little metal cover, and voila. You just need a tiny philips screwdriver to get those screws out (I used a swiss army knife... ). I got it from www.crucial.com.

Awesome, I just heard today that the new laptops have cheap versions that go for about 800 dollar!
That's cheap!

So they announced them.

Apple

Pretty sleek - and lots of great new features - the Macbooks especially got a huge step up in overall value. However, the glossy screens are a big turnoff for me - too many unwanted reflections (which is especially annoying for photo editing...). I'm happy with mine.

Other than the fancy mousepad, glossy screen and new casing, what are the new features? I didn't notice anything worth the upgrade in price. The MacBook actually came down $100 is still faster than the low end New MacBook. I might just go with a while MacBook. The new features do nothing for me - though the casing is kinda nice.

The biggest improvement to me is the graphics card. 5x faster performance, plus the ability to use the notebook screen plus an external monitor at the same time is a significant step up. Better keyboard, better trackpad with multitouch/gestures (makes trackpads soooo much nicer to use), sturdier enclosure, and the 2.4ghz model even has the illuminating keyboard of the Pros. It's really become a baby MacBook Pro now.

Shame they had to go with glass screens across the board though. It looks very sleek, but it really is a pain in the ass for critical editing work. Unless you buy a hood for it.

^ Yeah I'm not wild about the gloss screen only thing either but I'm guessing all their new products are going to go this way?

I doubt I'll want to replace my MBP anytime soon, anyway.

They're already out in Holland! Next week my rents are on holidays so I'll get mine prolly the week after, since they have a credit card that instantly insures stuff you buy with it for 2 years!

Glossy screens are made directly by the Devil himself, but the new re-design looks sick.

How long ago did the iPhone first come out? A student today mentioned taking pictures on one when she was "little" and that freaked me out. 'Cause to me, they're new.
