    I have the late 2008 (October) aluminum Macbook as well (though I wouldn't refer to it as "old!). I still have the original battery, though it's definitely fading. In fact, that's why I'm looking at the reviews -- am thinking of buying one before Jan. 1.

    So my battery, obviously, has lasted more than 3 years. I could get by, too, because I don't have to run it off the battery all that often.
