My used A1278 MacBook has a LIKK mfr battery that says:
"Replace 13" New Aluminum Unibody MacBook Model A 1 2 8 0 Li-ion, 10.8V $@Wh rechargeable" printed on the battery.
The battery never held a charge, even though it says condition "normal" on both System Profiler and coconut Battery app and has but 141 cycles to date.
It comes off full charge showing say 2:38 hrs of battery life, which is bad enough, but is down to 1:35 in about 20 minutes, I've never let it go to see how long it will last, i just carry the charger around to use it plugged in
Is this battery compatible with my MacBook A1278 or do I have the wrong battery installed?
General question: outside the issue of this helpful guide, does this development seem to make the MacBook Pro/ MacBook Air distinction look forward to be coming soon to be irrelevant? with this sleekness, lightweighness enterprize...
Also, what's up with the lack of plugs? I don't really like or need to plug things in, ..er, ugh, EXCEPT ALWAYS! are we now going to be carrying a "Swiss Army Knife of adaptors and split adaptors (split between whatever plug and the regular need to 'charge' or run off a/c power so later we don't run out of charge.. such a development would certainly makes the cleanness effort superfluous. I mean they do still have their Pads or Tablets or whatever they are right?
Lets take a vote: How many people think the missing plugs are great:
Corollary question: which plug do you miss the most (all of them is an acceptable answer)
one additionally helpful feature here: I wind up learning more about the product itself here than from all the apple advert has,
so, should we all get BB's because they've always had excellent hardware?
...or should we stay the !&&* away because they're OS is so crappy, they're not even smartphones: they're just really expensive, high quality regular phones with kick-butt cameras (sorry I owned one, .. well two actually, and pretty much never was able to get on the internet. Now... well for get it: BlackBerries are great, don't get one; may they experience a tenth of the trouble they caused me and my business. Well that's being a little too harsh, A SIXTEENTH :( !
