    Can anyone very kindly direct me to finding and replacing a battery for MDD dual 867 ?? Not sure if it's easily replaced or not.

    The time goes back to like 1969 :D on boot so I think that's the issue.
    I've been dealing with it for months now and just re setting the time/date in system pref. every time I boot.

    Much thanks for any info.

    Very helpful. I appreciate that.

    Also appreciate any tips on finding the battery online or elsewhere preferably.
    Thanks!

    Great, thanks for that.

    I'm guessing not so easy to find around town?
    I'm in Philly.

    I also can't believe I'm still getting use out of this thing in my studio.
    Other than the fan replace (when it was new) it's been real stable.
    But, looking forward to a new MP as soon as I can figure out which one (08-09-10 ?) post 2010 model info. :)

    Yeah might be tough to find in a physical store. But OWC's customer service is second to none.

    Crap, I should have checked. Oh well, 4.99 @OWC + 1.92 shipping. Should be here in a day or 2.
    Hell, a local Apple dealer said "sure we have them... $19.00"
    No surprise there.
