I'm very frustrated. Bought a Macbook from someone solely for the purpose of uploading our apps to the Apple App Store because Apple decided we couldn't use any device we wanted to upload binaries. The first mistake was upgrading the OS to Mountain Lion so I could upload our Apps because Apple required the upgrade, which I paid for at the time. I found out that the battery would drain like mad and that I was not alone in seeing this problem. There was a thread at the Apple forums about how Apple knew about this issue for over a year but didn't / couldn't fix it. So I DIDN'T USE THE MACBOOK AT ALL. Fast forward to an update for our app about 8-9 months later. I take the Macbook out of the bag and case and it's bulging something terrible. The trackpad is pushed far out of position, the bottom of the device has popped out screws. And I can't figure out how on earth this could have happened. Apparently this is a known Apple manufacturing defect. I'm wondering how others of you have or may have handled this issue. It's one thing to say that a battery failed and is out of a manufacturer's warranty. It's another to know about a serious defect like this where non-use can destroy the device and not have a recall or announcement so that users can deal with the issue before it becomes a fire hazard and also potentially destroys the entire investment. I'd take pictures but you can find them online.
