    I'm going to have to buy a new battery for my 14" iBook G4 soon. What sites have people purchased batteries from? What would you recommend?

    I've looked at http://www.freshbattery.com and they have one for $90 that holds more charge than my original battery did when I bought my iBook.

    Any other sites with good deals? Or would it be better to go with the Apple Store?

    Forgot to mention that I don't buy off of eBay. So, anyplace except eBay or other bidding sites.

    If you're near an Apple store, better just buy it from there. That way you have a physical location where you can take it back should there be something wrong.

    Otherwise, go to OWC or something.

    Authorized Apple Resellers would be a better option. You can check out the Apple Store and places like MacMall or Fry's.
