My late 2007 Macbook Pro 15" has never had great battery life. Maybe around 2-3 hours at the start, then quickly down to about 90 minutes. Now I'm getting around an hour. And I do know the steps required to recycle the battery and it really does not do much for me. I'm wondering what options are available to me. If I get a new battery from Apple, will it be just like this one was, or have they improved them? Are there any third-parties that sell replacement batteries that are better?
