    MyDigitalDiscount.com is wondering if there has been any noticeable loss of battery life over time and if there is a market for a high quality low cost replacement battery?

    Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

    According to Apple it will last 4 years so this time next year? Of course if you can get more time than the stock battery I would buy now.

    Looks like it will be the same capacity battery as there is no extra room for larger cells.

    How long did the battery last when you 1st got it vs. today?

    I got my gen A about 3 years ago and battery health still > 90%. Should last for 4 yrs or more, no doubt.

    Interesting considering Steve Jobs only announced the MacBook Air about 2 years ago. (January 2008)

    I don't think it's going to last 4 years ... Especially if you recharge it every day
