    No computer is without flaw. Doesn't matter what you get, you have a chance of having an issue.

    The battery is not a problem, it's what it's suppose to do, according to Apple.

    As for the rebooting, I've read that resetting the SMC should fix it, Like SauronMOS said. I haven't tried it yet because I forgot about it after it took 8 hours to back up my drive.

    Batteries aren't supposed to puff up like rigor mortis. There have been cases where the batteries cause damage to the case, trackpad, and internal components.
    I don't believe Apple for a second on that one. That's like saying that the gaskets in an engine are supposed to leak. =/

    My battery, according to Coconut, has 101% battery life remaining in my 2008 unibody o_O

    48 Charge cycles though, still breaking it in I guess. 20 months are logged according to it.

    No bulging though, everything works fine still. I have always had good luck with Apple batteries, in iPods and my Macbook. My 30gb 5th generation is 3 years old and the battery still works fine.
