Information week is reporting that Apple has a patch out to fix performance issues with their Intel powered laptops:
"Problems associated with the batteries included them not being
recognized by the computer or the battery not charging when the
notebook is plugged into an AC outlet. Also, the batteries could
exhibit low-charge capacity or runtime when the battery is in fact
fully charged. The battery pack could also appear visibly deformed."
The phrase "visibly deformed" is just scary. Having any part of a new
laptop deform could cause issues with fit and finish, not to mention
leakage, and nobody wants that.
The article goes on to mention some of the other recent problems with
notebook batteries that have made the headlines, namely Acer's recall
and the potentially dangerous batteries Lenovo bought from Sanyo
Electric. What do you think is the cause of these recent laptop
battery issues? Let us know.
