My 2015 MacBook Pro Retina exploded.
Daniel Dourvaris

My wife’s 2011 13" had the battery swelling problem. It didn’t burn, but the bottom plate nearly stripped the screws from the pressure and you could easily slide a credit card into the gap in the seam caused by the pressure. It’s disappointing to spend 2x as much on Apple to find out the hardware, though nice looking, is no better designed or higher quality than the alternative.
