Up and Running


Nothing is worse than a battery that does not hold a charge, especially if it is the lifeblood of a laptop computer. Over the last few months, my MacBook has delivered less and less battery-operation time, and eventually, a warning flashed on the desktop that the battery needed replaced.

My MacBook is nearly three years old and does not have an exterior-removable battery and required a trip to the Apple store and an extended stay: the battery had to be ordered since my MacBook is an "older" model.

When I picked up the computer yesterday, I was pleasantly surprised the repair didn't cost me anything.

  1. I'm glad you have your computer back. I guess the wait was payment enough for the battery.

  11. I am so jealous. I'm on my 2nd replaced battery of my Mac Book Pro and it's only 4 years old...or so I think. The power cord is going and I'll need to decide if I buy a new laptop or switch to an iPad. Decisions, decisions... glad yours is up and working!
