UPDATE: Sony fixed the laptop on March 4, 2009 at approximately 10:00am – that’s almost six months after the initial recall was announced.
The issue involves a small number of units which may overheat due to a wiring problem. Sony has initiated a voluntary program to perform a free inspection and, if necessary, a repair to ensure these units meet our high quality standards. (from Sony’s Support site)
I love this laptop as does everyone who sees it. Yes, it is that small. Yes, it does have a DVD burner. Yes, it is made of carbon fiber. Then, I found out about the product recall on September 21, 2008.
