New MacBook Air battery $129, installation free at Apple

As Dave noted earlier, one significant downside of the new MacBook Air is the non-replaceable battery. Well it turns out that's not exactly right. Our blog brothers at Engadget have learned from Apple that you can get the battery replaced by Apple for the same $129 that a MacBook (Pro) battery costs and Apple will install it for free. It's not nearly as good as a user-replaceable battery since this doesn't allow you to take a spare on the road, but at least it's nice to know that you can do something once the original battery stops holding a full charge.
