    New Battery
    Well looks like my MacBook batter has finally given up. I get 48% health (at best) even after callibrating.

    I wondered if anyone had any experience with 3rd party batteries. I have seen some 'higher rated' batteries from 3rd parties costing about $100, but wondered if I'd just be better off getting the Apple branded one.

    Anyone have any solid advice on this?

    I've gotten OWC's and been really happy with them, but I can't offer any specs - just a warm fuzzy anecdotal feeling
