    Alright so i've had this Macbook pro for quite a while now, its the February 2008 version. About a few days ago it said "Service Battery" on the top right. I bought the 3 year coverage for the Macbook pro.. would it cover the battery being replaced or no? When i read service battery it says the battery isn't functioning normally - it doesn't say replace son or replace now, so im assuming theres something defective with the battery? Thanks for looking.

    Call AppleCare at 800-275-2273, they'll evaluate the battery using values from the System Profiler and determine if it's eligible for in-warranty replacement. You can also bring the system to an Apple authorized service provider or retail location and have them run a battery diagnostic which will also qualify it for repair.
