Bad luck. I have called Apple, which says that a swelling battery is not a recall issue -- i.e. they won't give me a free replacement -- but they say that yes, a swelling battery should be replaced before it damages the macbook. And of course they offered to sell me one. I see that third-party batteries are a fraction of the $129.99 price Apple wants for its own A1185 MA561LL/A battery. Do we think it is worth paying up for the Apple battery?
