Buyer be warned.
I'd recommend going the most formal route possible, even if it means paying a little more. I bought a replacement battery at Compu Palace a couple years ago, and though it was wrapped in plastic and looked "new", it wasn´t. Batteries - since they are tucked so neatly away in the laptop - take very little visible wear so easily pass as "new", and since old batteries are very easy for people in the business to come by, they easily make it back onto the shelves since making a quick $100 is too big a temptation for some of the less ethical merchants out there.
So yeah, be careful, go formal, and ask for a "recibo".
