My macbook is getting very hot underneath, too hot to hold on my knees, and the battery has swollen.  Which problem caused the other which and what do I need to do?

Take it Apple before the battery gets worse.

A swelling battery is a dying battery. Just in case the swelling gets worse and the battery starts to leak, store it in a ziploc type plastic bag. That way you can keep it for 10 weeks if you have to.


Do not put it back in the Macbook, the swelling will almost certainly cause problems to other parts, like the trackpad and the keyboard.
