    Hi everyone!

    Quick question,
    I am buying a used 2008/9 2.4ghz aluminim unibody MacBook that needs a new battery. I am on a budget and in Europe. Are the ones sold on eBay okay? Any sellers you can recommend? Any input would be very appreciated!

    Thank you in advance!

    Unfortunately, I think it's gonna be a crap shoot.

    Also, if the price looks too good to be true on something like this, then it probably is. Check Apple's price and I'd say anything less than half of that is almost certainly not an authentic apple battery. (honestly, anything less than 75% of cost might be pushing it).

    Perhaps post some links to a few auctions you were considering bidding on (I know you don't want to give away any good deals you find, but it's probably the best way to get feedback)
