Also I note that for that model Apple quietly changed the AC charging adapter from a 65 watt to a 60 watt.
Worth noting if you perchance a new one.

Another note , apple has a reasonable fee for shipping repairs if you feel your being stiffed by the local repair.
May be worth looking into at the site along with an email inquiry.
In the mean time should you chose to send it I would recommend a local dealer to pull the information you need for work onto a flash drive.
That shouldn't cost much at all in fact I don't even charge for it.

Its a study little lap top as the spec sheet shows and worth the money IMHO to do both the battery and the adapter together.
A cheap set of precision screw drivers at the hardware store around 3 to $9 should take care of the odd jobs.
Sorry for the internment posts I'm following links as they appear for more information.

Well, I'm aware that sudden, unwanted change can be uncomfortable, but try to think about how good it feels buying shiny new stuff. Sounds like you have a plan. Extract work info from busted gizmo.... buy new gizmo.... fix and sell old gizmo. Macs are spendy though, hope it doesn't sting too bad.

Wont bother asking how you arrived at the conclusion doesn't matter, you got it in hand.
Well excellent then, now we can get back to our mutual silence once again .. I was feeling a little awkward there for awhile.

You unplug everything and see if the BIOS loads just like with PC. If you want to fix it yourself this is the only reliable method and the first thing any tech will do for hundreds of dollars..
