Removed the battery! That was pretty easy.

It's only a matter of time until you'll be able to buy this battery online from companies like us.

Removing the battery in the 17" is reminiscent of the MacBook Air-- several screws to remove the lower case, a few screws on the battery, and it's free.

The battery is Apple model #A1309, 7.3V 95Wh (12820 mAh).

Tree huggers everywhere will be relieved to know that it "contains no Mercury (Hg)."

The battery weighs 20.1 ounces (1.25 pounds or 570 grams). That's 20% of the computer's weight!
