Apple recall on laptop batteries

Computer giant Apple is recalling 1.8m batteries used in its laptop computers worldwide after overheating complaints.

The announcement affects laptop computers - the iBook G4 and Powerbook G4 - sold between October 2003 and August 2006.

It follows Dell's decision to recall more than 4m batteries from its laptops last week.

The recall does not impact on the company's latest line-up of laptops - the MacBook and MacBook Pro.

The batteries are thought to have been made by Sony, who also supplied similar batteries to Dell.
