Where To Buy An Apple Mac

  

To locate a quality replacement battery vendor for a specific Apple product if they are

not available through the Apple Store online, may require use of your product serial

number and a call to the Apple Store to ask (to be sure they don't have one) even if

Jan 22, 2020. Jun 25, 2020. Buying the new MacBook Pro isn’t the only expense. You’ll probably want to insure it, and luckily, there are deals in that arena, too. You can save $50 on AppleCare through Amazon or B&H when.

you cannot find one in the online store itself. If the computer has a built-in battery, it

may be serviced by an independent authorized Apple service provider. In some cases

you may find they could help locate a battery for older gear; perhaps not original Apple.


If your computer is newer than the 2009 model year, it would likely have a built-in battery.

Other suppliers, depending on your location in the global sense, can vary. If the MB/Pro

isn't too old, you may be able to find a quality replacement from OWC macsales.com or

other online reputable source. There are other suppliers who offer various items and not

all of them are of sufficient quality to be considered a good deal. Some aren't official, other

sources may have high spec quality that meets or exceeds the Apple original vendor spec.

{Then there are those 'clones' that look like the original battery - but may be poor substitutes.}


So if you are not in the US or Canada, your options may vary. A quality reputable vendor

should be able to offer a one-year standard guarantee or warranty. The actual use duration

may vary, as per 'cycles' and how much you rely on the battery, how it gets recharged, or

if you let the computer run the battery flat dead; these can make for poor battery life.


In most cases, you could search to see what may be out there, and then check elsewhere to

see if the product or the vendor has a good reputation. Some online resellers are short-term

and may disappear and not be available for any helpful replacement under warranty.


Good luck & happy computing! 🙂
