I've had applecare before, but with my previous Macbook Pro (2007 version), I got all my work done locally, and Applecare handled the payment to the authorized repair. Does this still work for the Macbook Pro Retina, or, because this is a specially manufactured device (read: not easy to work on), would I HAVE to mail it to Apple? EDIT: Reading from this site, sounds like I can get it done at the Apple Store? (http://www.everymac.com/systems/app...ro-retina-display-how-to-replace-battery.html) "Those who live near an Apple Store can have the battery replaced the same day with an appointment or opt for service by mail which takes 3-4 days." Any other tips? Thanks!
