    MackBook Pro 13-inch battery replacement
    The battery in my 2.5-year old 13-inch MacBook Pro is getting a bit feeble. I'm curious: if I have it replaced, will I get a similar battery, or will they use one of the new ones they feature in the new 13-inch MacBook Pros, which are said to be good for 10 hours?

    Specs:
    Back to my old 2.2GHz C2D MB after selling my MBP and wondering what my next Mac will be :)
    Do you mean 1.5 yr old 13" Macbook Pro or 2.5 yr old aluminium Macbook?

    The aluminum MacBooks have removable batteries. The 13" pros all have non-removable. And the 2009 13" pro 58 watt-hour batteries are not interchangeable with the newer 63.5wh models. Short answer....NO. You will be getting the same capacity battery that you have now.

    Sorry, I lost a year. It's a 1.5-year old 13" Macbook Pro with 2.53 GHz Intel Core 2.

    See these instructions. LINK A note of caution first: If your MBP is still under apple care, you can void your warranty by following the above instructions to replace the battery. Use good judgement.
