    Love the tutorial man...but this is the most moronic thing I've ever seen...you can take batery out of laptop 15 years old in a flash, while here you have to disassemble the whole %#*@ laptop...only idiots can come up with something like that

    I have to agree that this is extremely complicated and intense.

    There is no way your average user should be doing this and the average user should be able to replace the battery!!

    Like everything in the computer world, hardware or software, ease of use is no longer even a consideration!!

    Technical Support Bots are the rule and they rarely are up to date with the pages on the website!!

    Sucks!!

Hello, I'm just trying to find this bottom casing -- anywhere -- and cannot seem to be able to find or purchase one. Often the wrong one comes up when I search (as evidenced by vents in the wrong places). Any ideas? Thanks in advance.
