Can anyone tell whether:
- this refurb includes a new battery?
- the battery is user replaceable?
I would hate to be stuck with a laptop that has a battery that goes bad one day after warranty expires.
Batteries are not automatically replaced but they’re checked to make sure they have good life remaining.
As to replacement, looks like you have to open it up.
Look under User Guides. There’s a Maintenance and Service Guide there.
