Are the batteries on non Retina MacBook Pro's glued to the case?

I haven't found any information regarding this yet. 

Are the batteries on the 2012 non Retina MacBook Pro's glued to the case or does Apple still use screws to attach the battery? 

The MacBook Pro model I'm specifically looking at is part # MD104LL/A (2.6ghz quad core, Intel HD 4000, Nvidia GeForce GT 650m 1Gb video RAM)

Thanks for the help.

"the battery is glued to the case—requiring customers to mail their laptop to Apple every so often for a $200 replacement." iFixit - Kyle


The battery on the standard MBP remains removable: MacBook Pro 15" Unibody Mid 2012 Teardown

Mayer, I'm afraid you didn't answer his / her question.

The person is asking for the non Retina Macbook Pro's and you are giving him / her a link to the Retina Macbook Pro review.

Since Apple didn't say anything about the normal Macbook Pro I can't tell you anything.

So, we will have to wait till ifixit get one!.
