I have a MacBook Pro from late 2010 ( i got it on September)
is out of warranty since I did not get Apple Care.
So question: I have this message on the battery percentange: "Service Battery" follow by a little warning sign.
This is the info on my battery.
Since the computer is out of warranty what can Apple do for me?
the battery seems fine, but the "service battery" indicates that there is something wrong with the battery. So will Apple step up and change the battery for me since I did not "break" the computer, it is the batter that is going bad.
I will make the appoinment at the Apple Store, I just want to know what to expect.

I just wanted to follow up and explain that for some reason, the battery still is in great condition. Still is 78% but, the SERVICE BATTERY sign is gone. I believe is tha charging part of the board that is not working properly. Sometimes the charging cord wont turn on (the little green/amber light) So, yeah, the battery is not at 100% but I still get great battery life.
Thanks for the answers.
