Accu asus m6000 battery

http://askubuntu.com – My Accu asus m6000 needs a new battery,such as: http://www.batterij-oplader.com/asus-m6000.html .I checked with asus - live chat -- and they tell me they don't make the computer any more and don't have any batteries for it and don't know if they ever will. They gave me a number to call their spare parts department to see if they have any. I'll do that, but if they don't have any, what should I do? I've looked at Amazon and other places online and the reviews for third party batteries are not good. My laptop is 3-1/2 years old and I'm not at all ready to replace it - especially for a battery.
