    My trusty Powerbook G4 laptop's second Apple battery has now died (lasts around 5 minutes off line at what it says is full charge). Anyone have advice on replacements? $157 (equivalent) for the original compared to $63 (equivalent) for Seamac or $25 for Portacell. That's a big enough difference to make one think. The few reviews I've found for non Apple ones seem to be 50:50 good and bad. Bearing in mind age of machine what do the experts here advise? and what experience have others had? I am in India so if anyone has G4 12ins dying but with usable battery, do please let me know....Thks

    Hi there!

    Same boat here! :(
    I wasn't aware of those resellers.

    Checkout OWC (Other World Computing): http://www.macsales.com/
    or SSD Europe: http://ssdeurope.com/ if you reside there.

    Meanwhile, I''check out your tip's. ;)
