    will early 2009 MBPs get an 'extended battery' option for $129 or whatever that has the same technology?

    That would be awesome -- more "green" too, as it's a sheer waste of resources to buy a whole new MBP just for triple-the-battery-life...

    No, that would require rebuilding the entire machine.

    Honestly, this is the best battery i have ever used. Kudos to Apple. It charges fast and lasts so long :)

    Where do you get your info?

    It's an 8 hour battery on the 17", the rest have 7 hour batteries. And the main reason it has a high capacity is because it's not removable. So it would not be possible to fit one into the earlier units.
