WSJ: Sony recalling over 500,000 VAIO laptops

Sony-VAIO-F-Series-Notebook

The Wall Street Journal reports that electronics giant Sony is recalling over 500,000 laptops for a “temperature-control defect that may cause excessive heat and distort the shape of the laptop” and/or ” skin burns.” The WSJ goes onto write: “The recall concerns some of the company’s F and C-Series Vaio laptops sold since January 2010. [...] the recall applies to 259,000 laptops in the U.S., 103,000 in Europe, 120,000 in Asia and 52,000 in Japan.” Sony has stated that customers affected by the recall can fix the problem themselves by downloading a patch from Sony’s website, or have Sony pick the machine up to perform the repair work (which is just confusing ). Anyone out there rocking a hot VAIO?
