I saw that in one of our RSS feed posts. That's scary. An overheating battery can cause a fire which can have catastrophic results. Definitely don't want to use that MacBook Pro on your lap! Ouch.

And especially and definitely not anywhere on an airplane!!!

At least they haven't been banned completely. Yet!!!

And maybe this Apple repair replacement will delay such actions.
