    I was looking to purchase a new battery for my 15" MBP (late 2007 model). I was hoping to find a good deal other than Apple it self (as they charge $150 for a new battery). So what is the best place to purchase a MBP 15" battery online?

    thanks.

    I would never trust a battery that didn't come from Apple.

    Sure? I guess you are right. Then a quick question, seeing as I do need a new battery. What is the best schedule for calibrating batteries on laptops, every month, twice a month?

    This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions: Apple Notebook Battery FAQ

    Thanks for the link. Just ordered one. Today, I went into the Apple Store genius Bar with three batteries and all were determined to be shot.

    Did you get a chance to try out the battery from OWC? My battery just died and I'm considering ordering one. Wondering how good it is.

    Thanks,
