When I was looking for a laptop, one of the brands which I looked into was Dell. I finally chose an HP.

Surely you would have heard about Dell recalling up to 4.1 million batteries worldwide because of safety reasons. If I am not wrong, one of the batteries exploded right here in Singapore, though none of the reports online mentioned Singapore. There were incidents in Osaka, Nevada and a few other places.

And coincidentally, CF is thinking of purchasing a Dell desktop. Erm, I suppose it should safe, as the recall affects PCs and laptops sold between April 2004 and July this year.

YouTube even has a clip ....

Anyway, to kick off the weekend, here is something interesting related to PCs on fire ;P

Have a great weekend all.

I thought Alex just cursed his HP/Compaq laptop. Oh well, you might wanna consider jap brands like NEC and Toshiba.

Never can tell the difference since I'm such a tech himbo. Sigh!
