    When you do, take along a fire extinguisher with you. Just in case.

    OMFG ?!? Would never have guessed that was a battery!! How did that happen?
    It was just plugged in charging over night....

    Anyway it is covered under the warrenty but I must admit that I'm sure it fits the discription on

    Apple - Support - MacBook and MacBook Pro Battery Update

    Battery pack is visibly deformed.
    Still unlike Dell who will swap it out when you have such issue this has to go back first and then a new one is issued... I wonder if they can repair it

    I had a couple of batteries that needed replacing the other week. Both were Macbook ones and were not any where near as bad as the OPs battery issue. They were dead. Now i took these to the Apple store after calling the Applecare support team. I went through the problems over the phone and although there was a battery recall going on, my batteries were not in the Model number ranges. They still replaced them though which was nice.

    Not used Macs much. I've seen people using them for audio, which is really good, I've done a bit of video editing on a (pre-Intel) G5 (and a P4 PC using pinnacle) which was alright.
    After my experience with Pinnacle (v 9.4.3 onwards) i would never use it again. The amount of problems that i had with that software was ridiculous. Dropped frames mis-synched audio constantly. Frequent crashes during the encoding to DVD stage. Updates were useless. They managed to get the mis-synched audio down to a few seconds every minute of footage or so after an update, but it broke something else. Then they decided that enough was enough with 9.4.7 and thought if they want a fully functioning piece of software then they would have to go out and purchase v10 instead and left 9.4.7 in its sorry state. That was the last i ever used it. 240 i paid for that crap.
