Yeah... They're cheaper now... Not quite at 2k. Dazed, it's a new battery. It's not illegal just to change it. I've changed the batteries on my old Toshiba, the Sony Vaio and the Gateway. No problems...

So as you will have already guessed, this new MacBook Pro battery is actually removable. found out that the battery is actually removable. Though requiring bottom chassis access, the battery was not difficult to replace or remove. Apple secured the battery with three tri-wing battery inside the MacBook Pro’s case. But the main good news is that users can definitely replace the battery by themselves but it will most likely break Apple’s warranty.
