Apple announced a recall of 1.8 million laptop batteries.
If you own a 12 or 15-inch PowerBook G4, or a 12-inch iBook G4, check the serial number against the ones listed at http://support.apple.com/batteryprogram. You can request a replacement battery there or call (800) 275-2273
The recall news comes “hot on the heels” of Dell & Sony’s battery recall last week.
