Qantas Airlines is seeking advice on whether it should place restrictions on the use of Mac notebooks on its aircraft, following the computer makerâ€™s recall of 1.8 million batteries this week.
A Qantas spokesman told [url=http://www.apcstart.com/site/dwarne/2006/08/1153/qantas-ban-may-extend-to-mac-laptops]APC[/url] this afternoon that the company was seeking further information on the precise risk posed by the batteries in PowerBooks and iBooks, and whether they posed the same risk as Dell batteries. â€œWe have put limitations on Dell computers and at this stage we are awaiting further information from Apple,â€ said the spokesman.
