Another Dell Laptop Catches Fire
It may be giving away 432 laptops as part of a back to school promotion, but Dell could have a hard time finding takers if it can't address battery problems that are plaguing the company in the media. Yet another Dell laptop spontaneously burst into flames this week.
"One of our IT guys put out the flames (yes, I said flames) and thusly covered the entire area with fire extinguisher ‘material’. The battery burned its way straight through the laptop," a user by the name of Henrik posted to the Tom's Hardware forums, appending pictures of the aftermath. A Dell laptop previously exploded on video during a conference, prompting the company to launch an investigation into the matter.
