    I have an early '08 MBP 15", I'm sitting on the 361st charge cycle and from what I can tell from iStat I'm a the 71% health. that being said I'm pretty sure that I'm not eligible for a free replacement from Apple, but I am looking for a second battery. I was wondering if any of you who frequent here, know of any good places to find new batteries at a decent price (preferably around $80USD or lower)

    If you bought it less than a year ago, take it to an Apple store and try to have them replace it. No harm in trying.
    If they won't, check out eBay. That will probably be the cheapest place you'll find. It might take a little searching/waiting, though.

    Have you calibrated your battery?
