Over the past few months, the battery on my black MacBook has started to swell. I took it out and it's bulging a bit in the center. I used my brother's MacBook battery for comparison. It's definitely bulging. I don't have the money right now to shell out for a new battery. I just returned from being overseas and I don't have a job. Do you guys think Apple would be somewhat sympathetic to my situation? I've never abused the battery or the computer, and never exposed it to excessive heat or cold. I'm just worried about my safety, really. I still get a good 4 hours on a single charge.
