    I'm looking for a good resource to get a battery for a 4 year old Air Book. I took it to the Apple store and they told me Apple no longer makes the battery for it. Any suggestions? I really don't want to buy another Air Book just because I can't get a battery.

    Thanks, I'll check into that.
    I was getting the battery replaced for my daughter - It appears to have swollen to the point where it's making the keyboard bulge and the lid no longer closes correctly. She's headed to Denmark for a study-abroad program and I want to get it fixed before she leaves.

    One can always hire a PI to investigate?

    Yeah, that seems *REALLY* suspect. The non-user-removable battery was a *BIG* deal - they had to essentially promise that they'd have battery replacement available "forever" to calm people down.
