    ok a mate of mine bought a macbook 2.1ghz model...its gone faulty so pc world are planning to exchange the macbook for a brand new one. no questions asked..just a matter of him going to the store to collect the new one.

    my question is...

    i have a 2.13ghz macbook...battery cycle 171....100% health

    should i replace it for the one my mate has...its only done 2 cycles...

    kinda worried i might get one of the batteries that get down to 40% health after 10 cycles...(estimates)


    what do you think guys??

    I would definitely want to know...

    why your mate's MB went down and hopefully it wasn't BATTERY related! :confused:

    Hi - batteries have serial nos too (like PC World will know that)
