    Just took my MacBook Pro Retina 2012 in to have the screen replaced for the anti reflecting coating issue. I asked about having the battery replaced too but I had to pay for it as I'm out of warranty. It's at 70% for its health. Found out its $500 CDN as its the battery and upper case. Ouch! I'm gonna ride this old battery out for another year and order a new MacBook Pro next year I think. Can't justify that for a battery.

    What is "CDN"? In US Dollars, the battery replacement is $199, which is a fairly reasonable price given that the battery easily lasts 3-4 years with heavy use.

    That's pretty hefty, the only concern I'd have is swelling. Be careful, as there is a risk of the battery swelling as it gets beyond its useful life.

    Have you had the MBP for longer than 3 years?

    Thanks for that ! the $500 CDN price I got is for the full top chassis with the battery from a local Mac dealer. Don't have any Apple stores near me. I will call my local dealer again and see if the can look up that price.

    Cheers!

    For how long the screen replacement program (with the coating issue) will last ? :D
