So, continuing the Mac vs PC debate, or Mac-bashing, I will write about the exploding Dells of 2006. I only vaguely remember this news story and was curious to see what exactly was going on w/ these exploding laptops…two years later.
It looks like the cause of the explosions, which occurred about six times according to an Aug 2006 article, were faulty Sony batteries. The batteries for millions of laptops were recalled, just like hundreds of products that are recalled every year for one potentially hazardous reason or another. The end.
