    Hi y'all, Im having a hard time finding information on battery replacement information for my mid 2012 mbp. I used the search but the results are showing everything else but what I am looking for. Can I get some assistance please?

    Im thinking of replacing my battery myself. Im wondering if its worth buying an after market battery or if I should only get an genuine oem apple batter. Also, looking where the best price to order from is and any installation tips or any other installation steps I need to be aware of.

    TIA

    You can find the guide for the installation here: https://www.ifixit.com/Device/MacBook_Pro

    If you do go 3rd party, buy from a reputable seller such as iFixit or OWC, not from Ebay or Amazon Marketplace.

    Assuming it's the on retina Apple will replace it for $129. If it's the retina you'Ll want Apple to do it because it's glued to the keyboard and trackpad and they replace the whole lot but that's $199.

    Other than that ifixit will have all your answers.
