    Ok so I dont know if this is a stupid question or not. I have a 2009 model Macbook Pro 13", original it stated that the battery would last up to 5 hours. Now the same style of Macbook pro can last up to 10 hours or so. Is this because of the battery or technology. Can i simply install one of the new batteries in my older Macbook pro and get the benefit of the extra battery power? thank you for your time.

    I haven't tried it. But, IF the new battery fits, and IF it runs with it, I'm guessing you'll get better battery life, but not as good as the current MBP.

    Can't do it. It wouldn't work anyway. There was more technology then just the battery with the update.
