iShop good
Very few other tech problems – only one in front of me in the queue

The friendly folk at iShop told me that I could keep my battery while waiting ‘4-6 weeks’ for my replacement battery so I am quite pleased. They told me that I am using the current faulty battery at my own risk, so I said, ‘yah, I know, ain’t nobardy’s fault but mine if it blows up in my face, and I have to spend a lot more money having reconstructive surgery before I can think about buying a new laptop, which might not even be a Powerbook, because after this battery recall incident, I might just have sworn off Apples and Dells.’

But of course, it didn’t come out like that. Yay, new battery coming.

    actually, I just picked up my battery from the wheelock apple centre. although they did advise that it’d take 4-6 weeks, my replacement battery took about 13 days. I returned it on 2 Sep. Just got it back. *beaming*

    you should especially stay way from Sony Vaios, then. Sony manufactured all the batteries that were affected by this recall. (yes, those Dells and Apples used Sony battery cells.)

    I similarly “registered” for a new battery at Epicentre at Wheelock. Despite the “4-6 weeks” line, they ended up calling me back within a week to say I could pick up my new battery. Hope you get yours soon too!

    We are lucky, all we had to do is call up apple centre in Sydney, tell them the serial no.. and they sent us a new battery within two weeks, and we sent them back the old one! No ‘Q’ing… so happy. =D
