I have to say, I am very disappointed to find out that you can't change the battery out yourself for the newer MBP lineups. I came from a 2008 MBP which allowed me to change batteries when needed. I can not stand that you have to have the apple technicians replace the batteries for you. I honestly don't trust them because I don't know how much of a sloppy job they would do or if they would accidentally damage hardware in my computer. Other than that I have to say I love this laptop. It is a beast and the display is very beautiful. Does anyone else feel the same way?
