If it runs the computer about 50% longer per charge than a removable battery 
allows and the battery has a longer useful life then the only question I have is 
what happens when the battery reaches the end of it's useful life some years 
down the road?

In other words: is this non-removable battery replaceable by Apple factory techs 
or does the Macbook pro become a power-tethered system only?
