    Hi - its looking like I might need to replace the battery in my early-2008 Macbook Pro, I'd prefer to get a genuine Apple replacement battery if possible, as have had problems with third-party battery replacements in the past (though on a non-Apple laptop). I can buy a new battery through the Apple UK Education Store (I work for a University) for £90 - is there anywhere in the UK/EU where I could get a new OEM battery cheaper? Thanks!

    Because third-party vendors might not be selling what they claim (i.e. genuine Apple batteries) and/or old stock?
