    Since I just bought a new rMBP, I'm giving my old 2007 MBP to a family member. However, the battery has needed serviced for awhile now. I'm looking into buying a new one. Is THIS the correct battery I need? It looks the same, but I just want to be sure. It is the pre-unibody model of course. Also, is there a cheaper place I can purchase a battery? Thanks for any help!

    Yes, that's the right one for a 15" non-unibody MBP. I wouldn't trust or recommend any non-Apple battery, due to the number of problems reported with "knockoff" batteries. Also, there is no assurance that knockoff batteries have the same charging technology that Apple uses, involving the battery, the MagSafe adapter and the Mac's logic board.

    Did you pick a battery for your MBP? If so, how did it work out?
