is it just me or does it seema bit much to pay $159 for a new battery? Mine is getting really low... only about an hour of charge left in it...

I remember reading a while back that Yorkdale was clearing out batteries at the last end of the month sale... Anyone know if they will be on sale again this month? Also, i'ma bit concerned with buying a battery that has perhaps been sitting on the shelf for a few months...

Anyone know if the batteries on sale are new ones? Anyone seen batteries for less then $159?

It's relative. If you are buying it now and your 'book is work $500 then yeah, it seems a lot. But, if you buy it when you bought your ibook new it would be less than 13% of the purchase. Peanuts.

To me it comes down to whether or not I need battery power. My iBook lives at home so I doubt I will ever buy a replacment battery. You may use your 'book differently.
