I have a macbook and have had it just over, but the battery has shut down on me. It one day didnt want to charge and now it is showing the X sign in the battery bar. I know this is a known problem but will apple replace the battery after the 1 year warranty is over? -also I have another problem with my other computer. I spoke to apple over the phone to report the problem and they want me to take it into my nearest apple store (Regents St, London) but I really dont want to go in. Does anyone know if they have a system where you can send it off by post to them (I still have the original box), therefore bypassing the apple store?.
