In NEED of a new battery, but I do need help.

Update:10-11Source: network consolidation

I have the old macbook Pro, 15-inch, the all silver one, not the one with the black keys/border. Anyways, I know I need a new battery because when I take it off the charger, it dies within 30+ seconds. I was just wondering which battery I should get. I prefer one from a legit website. I'm not sure if the new macbook pro's work on my mac? I'm a noob with apple, so I am not too sure. I got this computer from my brother.
My battery's model number says (A1175), but the battery's I see on apple.com are MA348LL/A.
Post links if you can. Thank you very much.

I'd go with something like this:
http://www.amazon.com/A1150-A1175-MA348LL-Replacement-Lithium-Polymer/dp/B003DXF JY8/ref=sr18?ie=UTF8&qid=1293587521&sr=8-8
There are cheaper ones on the site but some are aftermarket or really old.
