    So if the battery in this goes kaput after lets say 3 years, and all of us take it to Apple to replace battery, how much is it going to cost? In my earlier macbook I could just get the battery from apple or eBay and replace it myself.

    Also, when I wake the macbook from sleep I see about 15% or so battery drain each instance, be it overnight or during the day. Is that normal, are you noticing such drops as well? I'm shutting it off for the time being because of this.

    Ask Apple what they would charge for battery replacement outside of warranty.

    There appears to be a OS issue and when sleeping some of the hardware is still active. Namely WIFI.

    I expect this will be fixed.

    Seriously? That is... a lot.

    I was wondering why they didn't have it up on the site. I see they do have it up there now.

    They don't just replace the battery when it's serviced
