Red face Macbook Pro...

I currently own a 2.16GHz Macbook Pro Core 2 Duo, I am currently having problems with the battery, I have calibrated it and run the thing deader than a doornail. The battery has been losing its charge I guess, the max is about 1hr and 30 mins, if I am lucky. So the verdict is, should i get a new battery or should I see if I can calibrate it again...

Thanks alot.

Borat is right, batteries lose their life over time. At least with laptops you can replace them and you could probably find a higher capacity battery somewhere online or something.
Desktop: Dell Dimension E510, 2.5GB RAM, Intel P4 3.0GHZ, 250GB HDD, Windows Vista Premium. Might not be the best, but the old girl is still running good.
