    Huh.. I don't remember hearing about a recall on any of their batteries. But there was a recall a year or two back on some of the power supplies.

    they had a recall back in 2001, but they then had *another* battery recall in late 2005. Batterys for Latitude, Precision, and Inspiron (I loled, because that's basically all of em, hahaha) were recalled. Dell had to replace em all.

    In 2004, they had to recall AC Adaptors for Latitude/Precision/Inspiron (again, basically everything) because they were shitty, too. Oh, and that included both 115V units, and 12V auto/air kits, too!


    fucking stupid dell.

    AN INQUIRER READER attending a conference in Japan was sat just feet away from a laptop computer that suddenly exploded into flames, in what could have been a deadly accident. Gaston, our astonished reader reports: "The damn thing was on fire and produced several explosions for more than five minutes".
    Should you witness such an event, his advice is, "Don't try anything courageous/stupid, stay away, away, away!"
