Hi New to the forum, and will be seeking help an opinions. I bought my mac in mid-2007 and I am having issues with it. First; Battery sucks, longest it goes for is for about 1:20 hrs/mins. Second; booting up takes a while for it to get to the main screen. I am looking for a new battery, but I am afraid that if I just buy a battery from a random site, that it will not be as good as it should. I read reviews of unsatisfied customers (amazon.com, ect.) Which is a good battery and for a good price? Should I buy a need charger as well (insertion to the power outlet is flimsy? The booting up problem, should I buy a new drive? Sometimes my superdrive will not read dvds or cds, had it replace by apple, but still having issues. My three year warranty is over. I believe its 3rd Generation Macbook Pro. Processor 2.4GHz Intel Core 2 Duo Memory 4GB 667 DDR2 SDRAM Hard Drive 160GB Serial ATA Drive@7200rpm Optical Drive SuperDrive 8X Display 15" Glossy Widescreen Display I'm still running Tiger. Thank you for future advice.
