Just what Apple needs now: A toxic Mac scare
If you’re using a Mac Pro and it has a strong smell, you may want to open the window.
French newspaper Liberation is reporting that the systems may be emitting toxic vapors, including benzene, according a report relayed by ZDNet.
ZDNet noted that this came up on Apple user forums last year, with some tracing the smell to plastic melting on heatsinks.
None of this apparently factored into this week’s AAPL downgrades, which contributed to the stock’s Monday drop.
