How much does it cost to replace the battery in the new 17-inch MacBook Pro?

After the initial enthusiasm, you begin to do the math to know when and how you will buy the new 17-inch MacBook Pro. If the old model already gave a ball show, the new configuration makes it even more tempting. And the internal battery? 1,000 refills, 8 hours of performance, innovative design, environmentally friendly…

<p>… But wait a minute. What if – by chance of old Murphy's fate or plague – I am drawn with one of those units that have a defect that the company says is apparently not under warranty coverage because I supposedly spilled something on it? How much would it cost me to pay for a new battery?</p><div class='code-block code-block-3' style='margin: 8px auto; text-align: center; display: block; clear: both;'>

Apple just declared the value of the joke. To replace the new model's non-removable battery, you will need to spend a medical $ 180 – which includes installation costs for the new one and proper and responsible handling of the old one. Replacement can be done at any Apple Retail Store or authorized technical service.

It is obvious that there is a technical concern on the part of engineers to build it with the utmost rigor so that future problems are minimized. After all, the company has already faced problems with the battery of the previous model and does not want to see the scenario repeat itself. In any case, it is good to be aware of the costs that you may have in a situation like this.
