Should I wish to buy a backup battery for my 17" Powerbook, where would be the best place to purchase one? Preferably in the UK.

I've had a look on Apple's site, but to no avail.

I didn't look too closely but if you get your part nmber you should be able to match up.I'm not reccomending them they were just first up on Google.

they ship to the uk, i'd buy some other stuff to subsidize the shipping like some ram or a replacement ipod battery or what have you.

i've bought stuff from them about 6-8 times, always arrived within 4 days.

I tried this earlier, and no result was found (rather, too many results were found - everything from iPod's, to PowerMac's).

Thanks for your help guys :)
