No shocker there, huh? Is there an after-market battery I can buy that will give me better performance than Apple's?

I'd like to hear more details regarding what happened with your battery.  Is your MB still under warranty (or AppleCare)??

Looks like a new battery will cost you around $100.

My battery just started to die after about 45 minutes - from the thing telling me it's at 50% then it drops to 30% and then 20% and then it just goes to sleep.

I chatted with iMAv about this, so this is mute issue. I just have to live with it or buy a new battery. I'll most likely do the later.

Aww, I thought you were going to post some pics of battery acid leakage.
