hi everyone- I woke up this morning to find my 17" MBP battery swollen. Nothing has come out or anything, but the seams have popped and it made the whole thing wobbly. My computer is old, 2006 and has had the same battery since i've had it. I rarely need to use the battery, and wouldn't care if it wasn't portable (since it really isn't anyway). Went to the apple store and they told me to buy a new battery, you are 338 days out of warranty. This is all very clear before I go in there, he's told me nothing new. Anyway, I can't really afford the battery, and to me, a battery shouldn't swell up, regardless of the age. So I am coming here for advice. I am tempted to keep using the swollen battery until it bursts and see what they have to say about that. Or email someone higher up some pictures of the swollen battery. It really seems like a safety issue, battery health is not common knowledge. I'd appreciate your thoughts. Thanks!
