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?

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.
