    I need a new battery for my 15" MacBook Pro, and we all know the Apple store is expensive for a battery. I was thinking about buying one online, but I want to find a good place to buy one. I need it for a trip in about 2 weeks so not much time to look around. Does anyone know of a good site to get one. I looked at Amazon, but I want to make sure the battery was never used, why I am leaning to Apple, but I know there are good sites out there.
    Thanks

    You think Apple batteries are expensive? Try buying a battery for a Sony laptop.
    Stick with the Apple battery. I have tried several alternatives, and in spite of claims of longer runtime and such, the Apple ones have always been better.

    You'd be surprised how fast they can ship. I ordered a generic DSLR battery that shipped from Hong Kong, and it got here in 4 days.

    Then I stand corrected. My experience has been more in the neighborhood of two weeks.

    07, not unibody

    I do not have a unibody, I should have mentioned that.

    Sorry if I left things out. I want to buy an Apple battery (not another brand), I was thinking of not buying an Apple battery from the Apple store. But I wanted to make sure I get a new battery, for instance I don't really trust Ebay because someone might have used it. I want it sealed and I am just looking for reliable sites to buy Apple products (outside the Apple store). I forget where I got my ram and other products. Why I am asking.. Just trying to save a bit.
