      The guts hanging out are just gnarly. Like those black snake fireworks you'd get as a kid.

      Looks like it just got back from Afghanistan. Are those bullet holes?

      Funny how one burning laptop can be smelt from 4 floors below

      So that's what all the lunchtime fuss was about - no wonder they are doing a massive battery recall!

      Can anyone identify the Dell model? I don't recognize it and can't recall a Dell laptop of any model of any year with jacks on the front.

      Don't blame Dell. This is all due to bad Sony batteries. And they supply laptop batteries to most of the major laptop manufacturers, inclusing Dell, Lenovo, Toshiba, and Apple.
