Just want to get on record with others about this problem.


The back cover began buldging and would not sit properly. On examining battery, found that it was slightly swollen and was pushing the cover out of position. From what I've read online, this has happened to many users and Apple usually will not replace the battery especially if out of warranty.


I may take it in to an Apple Store just to verify my diagnosis and plead for a replacement. I think they charge $129, but OWC has them for $98. Haven't checked elswhere.


Wish me luck.

MacBook Pro, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2), late 2008 unibody
