    Hi,

    My battery in my 2009 MacBook Pro
    Is starting die quickly.

    Where is the best site to order a new battery that will give me great performance?

    I did look on amazon, but I'm a little sketchy ordering from sites that don't specialize in computers.

    Thanks

    Look at this site for instructions:
    https://www.ifixit.com/Device/MacBook_Pro_13"_Unibody

    I believe they also stock parts, such as tools and replacement batteries.

    One very important proviso:
    If you do this yourself, BE SURE TO USE THE RIGHT TOOLS!
    You can find them at hardware stores, online, etc.

    If you can get an OEM Apple battery, they're going to be the best. Any 3rd party options may have a shorter life.

    This is very important.
    The battery is held down with screws that have three points (what do you call it!? as opposed to the phillips head's four)

    While you can get lucky and cludge it open with a flat or phillips screwdriver, you risk ruining the screws.
    I know this because I ruined the battery screws in a 13" 2009 MBP. :p
