I have a MacBook Pro which techically is not one of those notebooks that were involved with the battery recall by Apple.

I am not aware the reason behind the replacemnet except Apple alleged that the battery was not up to their standard??? I think it would put people’s mind at rest if a better and clearer explanation for the replacement has been given. Chris Thio
