    Where is a good place to buy a decent replacement battery for an original 15" Macbook Pro 1,1?

    Apple.

    Third party batteries are not worth the dead or recycled cells they're usually made from.

    I wouldn't trust or recommend any non-Apple battery, due to the number of problems reported with "knockoff" batteries. Also, there is no assurance that knockoff batteries have the same charging technology that Apple uses, involving the battery, the MagSafe adapter and the Mac's logic board.
