I read Triv‘s blog and he reports that his laptop caught fire in the middle of the night.
This is a picture of the laptoy. There are a couple of pictures of his room on the blog.
I wonder what circumstances this happened and if there are actually statistics of events like this. This is pretty scary stuff.
Will warranty cover this? Will Triv ever use an Apple again?

Looking at the picture, it is hard to tell which Mac laptop that is. In fact, the hinge on the back makes it look some other type of computer. Is it a 15″ PowerBook? If so, was this one of the faulty batteries that Apple issued a recall on? (It looks like the battery is what caught fire.)
It’s a 15″ Titanium powerbook, the batteries for which they didn’t recall.
