Apple PowerBooks…….They’re Hot!

Literally hot that is. Apple recently announced a battery re-call for a particular line of PowerBook, this was due to a fault that had been found in the batteries where they would overheat and set fire. The photos at the link below show the effects of the battery overheating, here’s a quote from the owner:

Just a warning to everyone: we woke up this morning at 6am because the apartment was filled with smoke and our laptop was on fire. It wasn’t plugged in, and it had been put to ‘sleep’ over night. It’s only a year old, so the lesson is: DON’T LEAVE YOUR LAPTOP ON UNATTENDED!
 
So who wants a PowerBook?
