Will this Mac Air power up safely with battery removed>
MacAir 11'‘ Late 2010 with a bulging battery (keyboard puffed up). Charger cord shows a green light. It powers on with the charger, but I get only a lighted LCD screen with a slash-circle at its middle that periodically alternates with the Apple logo. Doesn’t go to boot at all. Is it safe to remove the battery and operate the laptop without that battery? I’m hoping the logicboard and SSD are still OK. I’d buy a replacement battery only if I see everything else works fine.
