    My unibody MBP 17" has a terrible battery. 263 cycles in, it says the health is 89%, but it doesn't feel that way.

    I want to buy a battery and install it, but I can't find a reputable online retailer. I don't need/want to have Apple do it, since this machine is well out of warranty.

    Anyone done this before and can recommend a good place to buy a legit OEM battery?

    Apple is the only source for their built-in batteries, whether your Mac is under warranty or not.
