    i have an 867 12inch powerbook with 650mb of ram

    compusa ordered a new battery for my laptop cause my other one was dead

    i get the new one, and its NOT an apple one, its third party, gross

    i put the new one in, drain it all the way down, charge it up to 100% and then use it

    i had only ichat, safari, and dashboard running, and the NEW battery lasted for almost exactly 3 hours

    isnt that kiiinda short for a BRAND new battery on my laptop with just those apps running? please help

    i have a call into compusa, and im talking to the manager tomorrow, :noes: what should i say???

    It is, demand an apple battery. They probably only paid 1/2 or less of what that apple battery cost. Fuck if your compusa is like mine they SHOULD have apple batteries in stock.

    I looked at my compusa TAP warranty and it says that they have every right to use new or refurbished parts.. though I didn't see anything about third party stuff but I'm sure it's in there. I think it's pretty much crap that they can use refurbished shit.. but whatever. Just one more Logic board problem and I should get a new laptop :x:

    refurb != third party.

    if they gave him a refurb APPLE battery, he shouldn't complain... But a 3rd party batt is not an apple batt.

    they gave me some little booklet when I bought the laptop a couple years ago. I would assume it's on their website somewhere as well. :dunno:
