Hi all, I recently called up apple to buy replacement battery for my ancient MBP a1260 (Core2duo ~2008) and found out they recently discontinued the batteries, warranting maybe it is time for me to upgrade my laptop. My main question is for those MBP and rMBP owners whose batteries are glued in. 1. How was your experience with battery replacement with Apple? 2. How long did the technicians take to replace the batteries? 3. How is your battery's capacity after a year for the newer MBP/rMBPs? I am curious as I go through a new battery once a year (I do not have the best battery cycling habits and its just easier for me to replace it each year) and if current owners see a drop in battery performance each year, then I'll have to spend 100+ for a battery replacement + a laptop out-of-commission during the replacement process... Thanks for all the input! J.
