    I received a second hand Macbook as a donation for my studies. I see that the battery is marked with an X and needs to be replaced. Is there any way around this as this battery cost more that R 1800.00 is SA.

    It doesn't seem so.

    The X indicates either a loose contact between battery and MacBook or more likely that the battery is dead.

    Have a look at :apple: > About This Mac > More Info... > Hardware > Power > Cycle Count / Full Charge Capacity.

    Nope. Just replace it. You got the computer for free anyways.
