    What Macbook Pro Battery?
    I have sent my Macbook Pro for repair and the technician says it will need a new battery even the though the laptop is less than 18 months old but doing some reading this seems a habitual thing for MBP batteries. I looked at the Apple UK store and the a battery for my 15" Macbook Pro will cost 99 which is really expensive. Does anyone know any alternative places to buy preferably in the UK and are non-Apple batteries okay?

    Humm I checked around on the net for replacement batteries. These companies are in the US though. The batteries are around 99.95 USD so I guess that's not exactly any cheaper either considering they charge 22 bucks to ship internationally.

    P.s Love your Totoro avatar. ^-^

    $99 USD is significantly cheaper than £99, even with the shipping charges.

    Wow you are right, it's almost double USD. >_>""

    Anyways this place is having a sale.
    This place is cheaper by 5 bucks but is generic.

    I wanted the battery from the UK because of warranty issues. And I am very aware of the fakes from Hong Kong and China on eBay.

    Thanks for the compliment- Totoro is very cool!

    If you are really set on getting one from the UK then here.

    I don't understand the warranty issues that you are talking about? I looked at the Warranty info on the websites that I posted and they seem pretty legit and straight forward.

    Its just if something goes wrong I don't want the hassle of senting back overseas.
