    Is there bigger battery I can buy for the MBP? Because the one that comes with it is only around 3 hour battery life. But I would like to get at least 6, and hopefully 8 hours. Is there such a battery, because all PC laptops (or most of them) have these 12 cell type batteries. Thanks in advance for the help.

    As of now, there are no other options (barring 3rd party ones I haven't heard of) aside from buying a 2nd battery.

    There are third party batteries that claim longer life than the stock battery.

    However, I haven't tried them, and the gain in battery life isn't what you'd see from like a PC manufacturer's "extended life battery". (About 20% if I remember right)

    I don't remember the link to them. Maybe someone else knows.

    Yeah, OWC offers "high capacity" batteries, but I don't think they have them for the MBP yet. Not positive, though.
