The internal battery of the computer is obviously on its last legs (they should last about 2 years at least, but there are no guarantees on that.) I believe that they are about US$15 or so to replace. If you don't like digging about in the innards of your computer, then take it to your nearest Mac service store and they'll put it in for you.

Cheers,


Rifty.
