new mac battery type

One thing I've not seen mentioned anywhere, and I've not looked that hard, is that the new MacBook Pros have changed their battery type from li-ion to lithium-polymer. What interests me about this is that if this BIKEmagic article is to be believed then lithium-polymer batteries have a considerably shorter cycle life. A quick poke at the relevant wikipedia page seems to bear this out to some extent. Which is a little concerning given how much laptop batteries cost.
