    Just buy a new one. Too many headaches with aftermarket units.

    Lol its VERY hard to get into the UniBody MacBook Pros to replace the battery. The battery is a custom size and all that too, specially built for the machine. I'd just buy a new one from Apple, there'd be way too many issues with getting a cheaper one from somewhere else.

    By the way, whats wrong with your current battery?

    Don't worry, his laptop has a user-replaceable battery; even if it's the late 2008 unibody one.

    OP, try www.ebay.com
