    I have a 13 inch MacBook Pro that is telling me I have to replace the battery soon. I bought it in 2010 and this is the only problem I have had with it so far. I'm trying to find a replacement battery for it, but I'm not sure if it will fit my laptop or not. Here is a link to the battery I was looking at, http://www.staples.com/AppleMB771LL...k-Pro-Notebook/product_IM1V11775#desc_content . I have a staples gift card so I could get the battery for next to nothing, but I just don't know if it will fit. Can please help me????:confused:

    Can't see the product as the Staples site at the link you've provided asks for a zip code. However, I would say this first anyway...only get a genuine Apple replacement.

    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.
    The link below should answer most, if not all, of your battery/charging questions. If you haven't already done so, I highly recommend you take the time to read it.

    That battery is for the silver Macbook (2008), your model uses an embeded battery which can be found by searching for part number: 020-6547-A. You will need a Tri-lobe screwdrive or a really small flathead to replace.
