    My late 2008 Macbook (the aluminum one, not a Pro model) needs a new battery. This MacBook model has a battery door and is user-serviceable unlike other MacBooks that came after it. Can I call the Apple Online Store and/or Apple Support and simply purchase one over the phone? No point bringing it in because it is NOT builtin. Does anyone have experience calling Apple for this part? Thanks.

    Any update on if the battery was purchased and how it is performing a year later?
