I remember a few years ago, I had a bunch of the same laptops around needing batteries, I went to International battery up on victoria street towards Breslau, and they were able to replace the cells in the batteries I had, and they worked well, and were reasonable in price. I can't remember the specifics but it was a good deal, and I think it took a day or so for them to rebuild them. I don't know if they still offer the service, but you cold check there.
