    Any concerns with buying a non-Apple laptop battery for my MacBook Pro? http://www.suppliesoutlet.com/Apple-MacBook-Pro-15-Inch-Battery-A1175-p/apa1175.htm My battery is failing, and third-party options are half the cost, around $60 compared to Apple's $130. I don't travel with my laptop. The battery is for around the house use.

    Never heard of that vendor. Retail ratings say avoid: http://www.resellerratings.com/store/SuppliesOutlet I'd buy direct from Apple. Be happy you can even get a replacement battery in your model =p
