Though many manufacturers like Benq, Dell, Hitachi, Lenovo, Samsung and Apple too recalled nearly 10 million laptop batteries last year it seems they missed some of the flawed batteries in question. An Australian Apple MacBook owner woke up this Monday morning finding his notebook, the desk and some magazins around on fire. He was charging the batterie overnight which was reportedly not one of the ones to be replaced by Apple. So as long as this case is not clarified you still should keep an eye on your notebook regardless the manufacturer I would say.
The Apple Service already reacted and guaranteed him to replace the old model with a new MacBook Pro and take care of the damaged furniture.Source: MacTalk Australia
