I went to the local Apple Store today and they told me "We don't sell anything like that". Very helpful!Thanks Comments Reply 1 of 9 alberto Posts: 71member August 23, 2004 12:10AM hi, try OWC . It's a great site Reply 2 of 9 beige_g3 Posts: 203member August 23, 2004 7:09AM Thanks Alberto.Andy Reply 3 of 9 rok Posts: 3,519member August 23, 2004 8:53AM was that an actual Apple Store that told you that? because even my terrible local Apple VAR got my wife a replacement Pismo battery from the Texas repair facility within, like, 48 hours. Reply 4 of 9 alberto Posts: 71member August 23, 2004 10:56AM u are welcome, if you buy from them let me know how the battery works because I am looking for buying for my Pismo too. I had bought extra Ram and HDs from them and all were ok.

Reply 7 of 9 beige_g3 Posts: 203member September 6, 2004 2:18PM I took your advice Alberto. I recieved the battery and all is well. It seems like a nice place to buy from. Reply 8 of 9 alberto Posts: 71member September 6, 2004 9:18PM I'm glad that I could help, anyway I use to buy from them and never have a problem Reply 9 of 9 ebby Posts: 3,110member September 6, 2004 11:37PM I bought a battery for my Pismo from them in December. It is still running strong at around 6 1/2 hours per charge. It is actually better that the original one that lasted 4 years. Sign In or Register to comment.
