Splendid, like I needed this?!
The battery in my new MacBook Pro just auto-ejected. I wasn’t aware that this battery had an eject feature, but apparently it does! See, what happens is that it heats up to the point that it expands and becomes convex, thus not fitting in its defined battery compartment and flies out of the laptop. Neat feature, Apple.
Hey, at least I wasn’t one of the poor SOB’s who had the batteries that exploded and burnt their lap. Seeing how the lappy was firmly resting a mere inch from my cash and prizes, things would not have gone so well had the battery cells ruptured.
Random side note… Welcome everybody finding MMP from Digg! Don’t let this battery issue scare you away from the Intel based Mac’s, they’re great. Once Apple support found out my battery failed they issued a new one next day.
