just about every ibook and pb i have seen have ill-fitting batteries. i know this has been a problem, but does anyone have a mac notebook with a battery that does not stick out????? are there any plans to improve this??? seems a shame that a product that is amazing in so many aspects has this one annoying flaw!

On mine, the problem was caused by the springs having too much "push" to them. I trimmed 1mm off from the battery were it sits on the springs and it seems ti fit alot better.

Now you mention it. The battery pops out a very little (1mm maybe). Never noticed that before ;-D

Mine's fine, not quite flush - about .5mm out but not annoying at all.

I'm in your forums, writing sentences in a grammatically acceptable manner.

what is quite unflush is the cd/dvd drive, which sticks out like a sore thumb. Forcing it in further brings it beyond flush!

My battery doesn't stick out at all, but my CD-RW/DVD does the slightest bit. I don't find it irrataing though, but i do jiggle it unconciously.
