I was hoping you guys can help me with this, as the Apple website simply told me to go to the store to get it done but many people suggest I do it myself. I have a 2010 Macbook Pro 15" and the battery status now says "Replace Soon". It definitely does not last as long as it used to, but I'm just concerned because my sister's same model laptop but a year older, has a "healthier" battery than I do and I believe she uses her laptop much more.

I'm wondering is there an easier/cheaper way to change the battery myself? And would it be advisable? Thank you.

There is usually an easier and cheaper way to change a laptop battery, and your 2010 Apple is no exception. Here are the directions for how to change the battery: http://www.ifixit.co... Battery/3024/1 At the top of the install guide are links to the tools you will need as well as the battery. It looks like it will cost about $135 in parts and tools before shipping, and some of your time. Just be careful with electronics and electrical connections. Most of the things inside a laptop are delicate, and not designed to have to be forced.

Here is something for those who are looking for cases, this website is really good. I quite liked the case that I bought from them the other day.
