Batteries. No one's ever really happy with them, but everything has one now and they all need charging. With the help of Macworld senior editor Roman Loyola, Gordon Ung of PCWorld went deep in testing the MacBook Pro's battery recently, and found it to be pretty darn good, typically besting the much larger battery in the last generation. And speaking of batteries, we have an extended public service announcement about never ever using a device that's bulging, because that means the battery is downright unsafe.
