    Hey everyone,
    I've had my mac book pro for a little while and I can tell the battery is starting to go on me.. I went into the apple store to check prices and they were kinda high (close to $200). I then looked online for prices and battery's were only about $30. Is this to good to be true or what?

    Probably too good to be true. I have the same model, and as I understand it the battery "can't" (some say shouldn't) be replaced by the consumer. It's not easily removable like previous models (the white MacBooks come to mind). So unless you know what you're doing I'd shell out the money to Apple.

    Out of curiosity how many cycles do you have?

    What do you mean by "starting to go"? As the above poster said, the battery in the 13" MBP's starting in mid-2009 are not user replaceable. I'd have it done either by Apple or an authorized repair shop.
