Apple have just announced that they will be recalling 1.8million batteries after overheating complaints. This follows Dell's anouncement last week that they would also be recalling 4million batteries from laptops. It also comes after a surge in complaints on Apples forums about their whole line of laptops. Overheating issues, random shutdowns and user lockouts are only half the problem.
The laptops affected in the recall inclue the iBook G4 and the Powerbook G4 which were sold between October 2003 and August this year.
