    so i got a new battery cause my older one was dying, and my compusa warrenty gets me one free battery replacement

    i go to pickup the new one and its NOT an Apple one, its some third battery, nameless one

    its looks almost the same, except the bottom is plastic and not metal, and there are only 4 readout lights, not 5

    i want to know if.....

    1: will the life be any different?
    2: will it mess with my comp at all?

    i know the battery was MADE for this model, but nonetheless, wouldnt the Apple battery be better?

    I've never had issues with any third-party batteries, but my experiences with third-party batteries were only limited to the Pismo/Wallstreet (aka the brown PowerBooks) PowerBooks, so take it for what it's worth.
