This quesation has been asked before. The battery, I believe, is soldered to the motherboard.

Worse yet, it is soldered to the BOTTOM of the MB - just behind the left speaker

Requires a full disassembly and then a fair amount of de-soldering skill to ensure you don't fry something onboard.

Sparkmaker,

I agree completely.  I don't see why, from where the battery is, that they would'nt just put a replaceable under the mini-pci cover.

Usually the first right answer is accepted, and since this question had been asked before, the link to the correct answer is proper in this case.
