Can I ever buy another notebook computer again?
Or maybe they can just come up with better power supplies for notebooks -- you never hear about notebook recalls, only battery recalls.
Lenovo's recent recall of 100,000 battery packs used in ThinkPad notebook computers got me to thinking about this. This time, the fire hazard is if the battery is struck forcefully on the corner, such as from a direct fall to the ground.
Lenovo sold the batteries with new ThinkPad notebook PCs or as optional or replacement batteries for the following ThinkPad models: R Series (R60 and R60e), T Series (T60 and T60p) and Z Series (Z60m, Z61e, Z61m, and Z61p). The recalled 9-cell batteries have the part number FRU P/N 92P1131, which can be found on the battery label. Free replacement batteries are available from Lenovo at (800) 426-7378 or http://www.lenovo.com/batteryprogram.
Will I ever buy another notebook again?
Yes, am sure I will, but which one?
