This doesn't make sense. The battery cost $110, plus shipping, which will come out to about $130, with next day shipping. Apple does it for $129, and will do it same day with an appointment. I know some people will do it for fun, but if you're trying to save money, I have to roll with Apple on this one.

I ordered a replacement battery for $75 (shipping included) and 3 days later the switch is done (thanks for this easy guide!). Now, my wife's MBA is free from power cord again! It is a no brainer!

Other guides mention from late 2010 onwards Apple use 5-star anti-tamper screws on the bottom lid. So such a bit is useful on those later models.

Any idea where to buy the two screws of the battery? One of mine is spread and unusable.
