    Will this replacement battery work?

    I need to get a replacement battery for my old MacBook Pro 13-Inch "Core i7" 2.7 Early 2011. On NewEgg, I see one for the same Mac, but it's iCore i7 2.8, not 2.7. Is this ok? Will it still work? Thanks.

    I replaced the battery in my MBP 13 mid 2010 machine in 2015. It has started to show signs of lack of capacity and overnight in sleep mode drops to around 30 to 40%. It then charges up to 99% within an hour or so and doesn't reach 100% for an age, not sure how long? I have had a look at the...

    Early 2011 13" MBP worth upgrading or should I look at retiring it?

    My MBP has been all around the world with me. I maxed out the memory (8GB) and that's about it. It's kind of like a train. It can be slow to start, but once the momentum is up, it runs fine. Once its been idle overnight, it can take a couple of minutes for things to start running smooth...
