Is anyone aware of any aftermarket batteries that last longer than the ones sold by Apple for the MacBook Pro?

None that I know of. My old macbook pro with a fresh charge would last 4 to 5 hours maybe more depending on how I set everything up.

If you have 10.5 or above get the fan controller app when on battery you can turn down the fan so that the battery last longer.

Thanks, I'm going to look into that fan controller app today. First I've heard of it.

A computer Virus for you to be aware of.........


Quote:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------


PLEASE CIRCULATE THIS NOTICE TO YOUR FRIENDS, FAMILY, CONTACTS! In the coming days, you should be aware.....

Do not open any message with an attachment called: Invitation FACEBOOK, regardless of who sent it. It is a virus that opens an Olympic torch that burns the whole hard disc C of your computer.


This virus will be received from someone you had in your address book .. That's why you should send this message to all your contacts. It is better to receive this email 25 times to receive the virus and open it .. If you receive a mail called: Invitation FACEBOOK, though sent by a friend, do not open it and delete it immediately. It is the worst virus announced by CNN. A new virus has been discovered recently that has been classified by Microsoft as the most destructive virus ever.


It is a Trojan Horse that asks you to install an adobe flash plug-in. Once you install it, it's all over. And there is no repair yet for this kind of virus. This virus simply destroys the Zero Sector of the Hard Disc, where the vital information of their function is saved.



SNOPES SAYS THIS IS TRUE............
