    I have a late 2009 MBP 13". Can I put the new 2010 MBP's battery in my MBP?

    What would be the point? The increased battery life is due to a combination of hardware and software changes, all of which you won't be able to do with your 09 MBP.

    Ohh. I thought they improved the battery in itself.

    They did, but only marginally. You'd be looking at an extra 20 minutes or so under the best circumstances.
