    Is there a larger battery that can be had for the macbook pro? I'm going to begin using my macbook for business and I don't want to carry the charger and I will be running Parrells, so it will be pushing the battery pretty hard.

    No, there isn't a larger battery. Just take the charger with you. It's not that big. There are many factors that impact your battery life. See the BATTERY LIFE FROM A CHARGE section of the following link for details, including tips on how to maximize your battery life.

    This should answer most, if not all, of your battery questions:

    Taking the adapter is all well and good assuming I can plug it in, which will not always be possible/appropriate/professional.

    Just plug it in when it is possible/appropriate/professional, and maximize your battery life when it isn't. The batteries are built-in, not user-replaceable and a larger battery isn't available. It wouldn't fit, even if there was one.

    You could also use an external battery (link is only one example) if you have no access to an outlet.
