    vintage macbook air battery change
    I have been told by apple store and apple authorised shops that my MacBook Air is vintage and they don't have battery for replacement. Where can I find the vintage battery? Or do I really need to bin my MacBook Air?

    Texas, where else?

    Sorry, but "vintage" does not help - which model MacBook Air is it?
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.

    It is MacBook Air (original). I have just been to this site How to Replace MacBook Air Battery (Official/Self) @
    They say that the battery replacement is possible but still where to obtain 'vintage' battery remains a big issue.

    Your best bet to find a replacement battery is eBay.

    eBay is probably a great place to get a replacement and also have them:

    Macbook Air Battery A1245 Replacement
    MacBook Air (Original/Late 2008/Mid 2009) Replacement Battery (661-4587, 661-4915) - iFixit

    Here's the replacement procedure:
