Replace Battery for P400 Touch or get new laptop?

2019-07-24, 3:54 AM

I've had my IdeaPad P400 Touch for 5+ years now, and I can't use my laptop without having it plugged in all the time. Recently a message popped up on my screen saying that there's about 40% life left in my battery and it needs to be replaced. My laptop still runs really fast, and I don't see a need to get a new one except for the battery issue. But does it make sense to track down a replacement battery? I noticed in a video of someone replacing the hard drive of their P400 that it's a bit tedious to take apart basically the whole laptop just to get to the battery compartment. I wouldn't want to mess my laptop up. Is battery replacement a service the Geek Squad at Best Buy provides, or another Lenovo-recommended seller?

If the laptop is still fast,in good condition and all you have to do is replace the battery I would keep it instead of looking for a new one since finding a new good laptop can be hard. On Best Buy's site they state that they do laptop repairs such as virus removal,data recovery etc, 

 

Hope this helps

Cheers

Thank you! I just called Lenovo as well and they said Best Buy is a partner of theirs so that would be a good option if I don't want to replace the laptop.

you are using your laptop from last 5+ years, so long time the battery obviously should get changed. It is common that happens in every laptop after a couple of years. So you should change it time to time.
