Non-Removable Laptop Battery: Dealbreaker??

Hey Tribe,

I've been looking at what will likely be my next laptop (with the possibility of waiting for a Haswell upgrade). Being a Canadian, this link is to Sony.ca, but you'll see quite a sweet package for $999.

My biggest concern is that I've read the Sony Fit series doesn't have removable batteries. Is this an automatic deal breaker? Does this mean I can never replace the battery? Or just that I'll have to pay someone else to do it?

Comments greatly appreciated, thanks!
