    Well I just got my new macbook pro 17" and realized that there is no removable battery like the new 15 inch versions.....

    So do I just remove the screws on the bottom and that will give me access to the battery and then the hard drive?

    I tried google, to no success.

    Thanks!

    This might help a little more than me trying to explain it here.

    Actually, ifixit only has guides for the 15", not the 17", if I recall.

    Ok next question....

    Can I just do a restore from Superduper (hd's are the same size) to get my new MBP to be the same as my older one?

    Unless I am completely off, you should be able to with SuperDuper.
