    I've got a 2010 MBP and the battery barely lasts two hours on a charge, so naturally was thinking of replacing it. How difficult is it to do yourself?

    If you're careful, you can use a small flathead screwdriver to remove these screws.

    - I've heard that, too. I tend to be the kind that would rather buy a fancy screwdriver than risk stripping my screws, though. But it's an option.

    - Conveniently, Ifixit sells them, too. If you follow the "Parts" link below the upper right photo on the guide pages.
    Here's for 15".
