"The world's largest manufacturer of personal computers, Dell, is to recall 4.1 million of its notebook computer batteries because of a fire risk." - bbc news
you never know maybe people might end up liking them, an exploding laptop, its the kind of thing james bond would have
ian flemming could have come up with ALL the sony drama!!!!!! if this allegations true, sonys gonna getthe firing squad!!!! heheh
i know you hate Sony, but you gotta realize that Dell make crappy batteries. if you search online about Dell laptop problems, it's usually the battery or power related. Dell is just using Sony as a scapegoat. even with this battery/power issue, i still consider Dell one of the best laptops out there.
Special Guest, the batteries are made by sony, so how is it dells fault. Well they shouldn't have chosen sony in the first place. I guess companies will think twice and won't turn to sony for products. Sony is going down big time, it looks like the jig is up for them. I have a feeling the majority of that money is coming from sony since they made and sold dell the batteries.
That is not a feature you want in a laptop.
...I hope MS makes the Zune with a self-destruct feature!
hehe. I can hear it already, "Child gets his hand blown (literaly) by exploting batery inside PS3 Controller". Sony better come up with some statement before parents start saying, "Better safe than sony". Knowing Sony they will probably not say a word.
i have one of those batteries & i don't really look forward to the possibility of it spontaneously catching fire. This is irksome as it means going without my laptop for 2-3 weeks....yay....this endears me to Sony..
if you really have one you'll need this https://www.dellbatteryprog...
it's a different type of battery to the one listed. Thanks for that plyer 1 :) I'm still going to ring up the support centre in Europe to make sure I'm not going to wake up to an inferno!
I like that one, Sony burning down houses. Thats not good.
For no reason like !wow! isn't it obvious that other companie's just have nothing else better to do but blame one another such as this article stating that DELL is blaming Sony for no apparent reason if they can prove it I doubted.
