    Does anyone know if this battery was from the recall program on the Apple website?

    Serial numbers: A1175 ending in U7SA, U7Sb and U7SC ??

    Its got me worried now. I put mine to sleep all the time.. Don't want it to explode..

    Any information much appreciated.

    Thanks,

    Rob

    If it is necessary, I have no doubt that Apple will promptly inform their customers of a possible risk regarding a product, but until such information is released, I would be treating it as a one off incident.

    Please do no jump to any conclusions.

    Apple Support is probably the best place to look for this maybe? http://www.apple.com/support/exchange_repair/

    Those three are listed in the battery exchange program.

    Hello to you all from my new macbook pro. These are pretty nice machines!

    I had a look at that last video. It was a similar reaction but the process was much faster.
    The hissing was followed by a similar plume of smoke as the first one in the video, but only a couple of seconds later it ignited. The flame was also blue, like a gas stove rather than the yellow flame in the video. A few seconds later the flames died down and were yellow.

    That's a hot lappy.... hot in the right way this time . I imagine if I were you I'd still be a bit shaken up!

    Yes. I'm very happy with the performance of the macbook pro. It runs cooler than the white macbook too (might be the core 2 duo vs the core duo).

    Well I cannot, and will not leave the new macbook pro on charge unless I am around but stuff happens, the world keeps spinning...
