I awoke on Friday morning to find my precious laptop had swollen………………. something deep inside her was growing, was she pregnant I thought? The battery housing plate was being forced up in a huge curve and the top plate surrounding the keyboard was being prized off by this alien being swelling inside… google the findings, rang my Mac man. It was official my 17″ Macbook Pro has swollen battery system. This phenomena has hit many, many 17″ Pros, it starts with sudden cut outs, and battery charging symbol not recognising the charger, all of the symptoms mine carried. Then if left comes the full blow out.
However, on visiting the Genius Bar in Regent street today, they replaced the battery and top plate without any qualms whatsoever…………. what a relief. So I am back tapping away, lap top bought back to optimum health. One happy bunny!
