    My iBook has recently become severely tied to the power cord. So I decided on getting a new battery and saw Apple's price of $126. Is there any place I can get a cheaper battery for my iBook or is Apple the only option.
    Thank you for your help in advance.

    Actually, I have been looking for a while, and while there a lot of people out there selling batteries, very few seem to be a bargain.

    I did find, however, this one:

    ComputerGiants.com

    They have batteries for the 12" series of iBooks, but I do not know if they are the 3000+ mA batteries, or the newer 4000 mA versions. The one in my 600 was a 2700mA, so for me, either will give me longer life than I had before.

    The other thing is... I have never ordered from these guys before, so YMMV.

    Let us know who you ordered from, and what the total was. I am sure that that would be some very useful information.

    Max.
