A quick peek over at Engadget reveals something we probably didn’t want to see again: a battery significantly swelling on a 17″ Core Duo-based MacBook Pro.
Not a pretty sight and given last year’s swollen batteries found on other MacBook Pro models, this is typically the final stage before a battery explodes. In 2006, Apple recalled a number of flawed batteries and offered free replacements.
Still more disconcerting is Engadget’s claim that this is the fourth such reported incident.
If anyone else has experienced this with their 17″ Core 2 Duo-based MacBook Pro, speak up and let us know.
