    My battery on my June 2006 macbook is completely dead. What should I buy? :)

    Edit:

    This very low battery is causing my macbook to shutdown sort of randomly. When I unplug it, I see almost no red bar (it's practically empty) on the battery indicator and it shuts down shortly after. I just used Coconut battery and it says 0 mAh. xD

    ...get a new one?

    Or scout sites such as e-bay for lightly used or new batteries. Ordered mine from Japan for 88$+delivery costs (=120$) and it still came out a bit cheaper than getting a new one in the US and significantly cheaper than getting a new one locally (225$).
