    my macbook unibody is getting old i guess...the battery last for like 4 hours at the most now.

    is this normal? should i just buy a new battery?

    Which MacBook unibody do you have?

    Here's mine... still getting 7-10 hours, but mine is a little newer than yours. Not exactly sure what could be causing the problem. Have you calibrated your battery lately?

    i have the late 2009 unibody, never calibrated.

    just read up on apple.com on how to do it. it also states my macbook battery comes pre calibrated and there is no need to do it.
