• With the number of recent threads from brand new users that we have observed in our Classifieds forum selling goods under questionable circumstances, we have instituted a new policy restricting new members of iLounge from posting new threads in the Classifieds forum until they have reached "Regular Member" status.

    New users become Regular Members once they have made 10 posts and been a member of the iLounge Forums for at least 7 days. Prior to this time, members may still read the Classifieds forum, and even respond to existing threads for items being sold by other members, but they may not create new threads advertising their own items for sale.

    This will hopefully help to protect our user community by discouraging fraudulent users from signing up and posting classified ads without having at least a very basic level of established membership in our forums.

    Obviously all users should still exercise due diligence when making use of our classifieds forums, but we hope that this restriction will help to decrease the number of blatantly fraudulent ads that we have been seeing in recent weeks.

    Please be sure to review our Classified Forum Policy for more information.

Im not sure what forum to put this in cause it doesn't exactly have to do with an iPod. Can you tell me if MacBooks have removeable batteries or not?

All apple laptops do, probably so if you're on the go and need more battery you can buy another to put it in.

Lots of people carry spare laptop batteries to use if they travel lots by airplane or bus where you don't have an accessible power source. Even though batteries weigh quite a bit, most laptops are 5-8lbs.

Usually a laptop has plenty of battery life for general use. Unlike the iPod, all laptops including the MacBook will allow you to easily replace the battery if and when it fails or if one battery does not give you enough power.

Yes they do. MacBooks have removable batteries and removable RAM and hard disk. All of which are very easy to change.

So this would mean, unlike an iPod that the Macbook can last a very long time? Because you can just swap batteries when yours has no charge anymore. Depending on how well you take care of your HD that could last a long time. We have an HD that's lasted 8 years now.
