Okay, basic information: Model: 13" MacBook (White) Year Purchased: 2007 Health Information: Cycle Count: 393 Condition: Fair AppleCare protection: Expired, as of late 2010. I've had this Macbook since my senior year of high school. Now that I'm a senior in college, I've realized three things: 1) The battery bulges a decent amount (1/4 inch or so - enough to scrape against the table) 2) Whenever I rest my left hand next to the trackpad, it will start randomly clicking all over the place. Unfortunately, this has resulted in hours of lost work recently. 3) Battery capacity has been decreasing rapidly over the last month or so - I can barely get an hour out of it before it dies on me. I've read things back and forth where people have managed to get their battery replaced for free, even without AppleCare. I've also heard stories where Macbook users have pulled 700+ battery cycles before the battery bit the dust. Furthermore, this Macbook has never been dropped, thrown, or subject to water damage. Considering my AppleCare has expired, is there any likelihood that I can get a replacement battery from Apple for a reduced price, or am I stuck shelling out $130+ for a new battery for a 4-year-old laptop?
