  • Stop using the battery immediately!

    Great, and wait 4 to 6 weeks for the replacement. So much for having a laptop.

    • You'd think

      that after so many battery recalls across so many years( I'm not talking about just Apple here; everyone has had issues ) the industry as a whole would be able to deal with this better. 4 to 6 weeks is just BS. 1 week is simply too much

    • You could always ...

      ... buy a pedal generator ... ;-)

      Seriously though, it really does sucks for affected owners.
