Four reports and Sony recalls.

Always doing as much as they can. ^_^

If I buy a Sony laptop, I risk:

- electrocution if the Sony AC is faulty
- explosion if the Sony battery is faulty
- rootkit malware exploits if I play CDs

This is not an issue, right n4g?

better than offering a grounding a wire and a fire extinguisher along with a 3 year warranty.

@Commodore you shouldn't even be asking that question, because it has nothing to do with the PS3. All I see is desperation in your post to get this to be an article about consoles. N4G is a gaming site, but this is to do with Sony's laptops, and they're doing something about. Take off your goggles, and try and not to think about a stupid thing on the internet. You're as bad as PS3 fanboys, who do the same exact thing whenever the see the word '360,'and 'an issue,'and they claim RROD, and if you're bothered by it then you should try, and be mature.

*Rolls eyes*

It's a shame, there's always one problem or another with laptops.

@ skittles

Get a grip dude!

I said NOTHING at all about the ps3!
It was YOU who brought up the PS3.

This story is about Sony laptops.
MY comment was about Sony laptop adaptors, SOny laptop batteries and SOny laptop Rootkit malware. N4g has all kinds of news and articles- not just about consoles, my blinkered friend!

In fact, the story was NOT submitted in the ps3, 360 channels!

Seriously, dude, wtf?

Your comment attacked me for making anti ps3 remarks when i did nothing of the sort!

I have rightly reported your comment as OFF TOPIC, because you added nothing to this discussion, except to improperly attack my character and show that you are ignorant of n4g content beyond your fanboy focus.

This is what a respectable company does when they have a product that isn't up to par. THEY RECALL IT.

To bad Microsoft didn't recall all their 360's like they should have.

I guess when there is a bunch of idiots that don't mind getting screwed over, then why should they do the right thing. Right?
