From what I've heard, sony produces the batteries for the macs, which would explain why there's some trouble with ibooks catching fire.

Hazard: Irregularly positioned wires near the computer’s hinge and/or a dislodged screw inside the hinge can cause a short circuit and overheating. This poses a burn hazard to consumers.

Nope...not a battery this time.
