Apple "Apple today quietly refreshed its entry-level MacBook laptop, boosting the processor speed and inserting a longer-life battery. The MacBook remains priced at $999. Apple bumped the MacBook's Intel Core 2 Duo processor speed to 2.4GHz, up from 2.2GHz, and replaced the battery with a 10-hr. battery to match the estimate that it uses in the higher-priced MacBook Pro line. Like the batteries used in those more expensive cousins, the MacBook's is within the case, and cannot be swapped out by the user. The MacBook now sports Nvidia's GeForce 320M integrated graphics, the specially-made-for-Apple successor to the GeForce 9400M, the MacBook's former chipset. The GeForce 320M also powers the two lowest-priced 13-in. MacBook Pro laptops, priced at $1199 and $1499."

I've got a slightly older MBP.

It's Unibody but with the removable battery.

On the first day I got it I opened the battery door once and said "hey look the battery", haven't opened that door since.

I've had it about 18 months for 149 battery cycles. I'm typing at a cafe with wifi now.

1000 cycles sounds like it would see me for quite a few years.

That's just me though YMMV of course.
