    Anyone know where to get a high capacity replacement battery for the late 2008 uMBP for cheap? Or of any good ones? Now my battery crapped out on me... my MBP hates me this week.

    I think there are a few on Amazon that advertise that it lasts longer than the Apple battery (you got to double check that) but reviews indicate that it's equal or worse than the Apple battery but at a lower price. Personally, I would just stick with Apple batteries unless you REALLY need to save money.

    Besides buying the battery from Apple at full price are there any places that sell just the Apple branded battery for cheaper?

    I would never trust a battery that didn't come from Apple, since so many have reported problems with 3rd party batteries. This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:

    Are there resellers of Apple batteries?

    Not that I'm aware of. I just buy from Apple. It's not just the cost of the battery; it's the value of my MBP that I'm not willing to risk.
