    Does the top case (keyboard/trackpad/etc) get swapped out with a battery replacement? Has anyone had their battery replaced yet?

    Yes, the entire top case is replaced as it includes a battery, track pad and keyboard.

    What is the cost of the battery replacement?

    I never thought you'd get a new trackpad and keyboard with the battery too.

    If you need a new trackpad, does the battery get exchanged too?

    Yes. The trackpad, keyboard, battery and top case are all one assembly, that the service providers are not even allowed to take apart, as that could potentially damage the battery cells.

    If one of the parts needs replacing, the whole assembly is replaced.
