    Is it possible to buy a proper Apple Battery to replace the tired one in my 3 year old MacBook pro unibody here in the UK to fit myself?

    I once bought a 3rd party battery for an iBook, it was cheap, but it was rubbish!

    Please, check your inbox messages.
    You can get a new genuine Apple battery from a high-rated eBay seller for $59.99 (with free shipping).

    I thought the batteries in the MAc Book Pro line were no longer user-replaceable. Am I wrong, or is it do-able, but just a lot more difficult than it used to be?

    Given the problems I've had with batteries, and the fact that I tend to keep my computers for a good while, I won't buy a computer that I can't replace the battery on (or have it done for a REASONABLE price, if I can't do it myself). I don't mind "some assembly required" (not much could be worse than taking apart my parents old tangerine clamshell iBook for an upgrade).

    (Currently writing this on a 2006 15" MBP ... with an aftermarket battery that lasted one month longer than it's 1 year warranty)

    They are not considered user-replaceable, but it is possible to replace them yourself on the non-retina models:

    Of course Apple will also do it for you for $129 or $199 (retina models).
