Total Recall

Master of PuppetsSo far, so good:

When Who Units
August 14 Dell 4,200,000
August 24 Apple 1,800,000
September 19 Toshiba, Lenovo/IBM 830,000 and 526,000 respectively
October 4 Fujitsu 338,000
October 6 Hitachi 16,000
October 16 Sharp 28,000

That makes about 7.7 million units in total and is going to cause a bit of a dent in their ego. At this point it’s still unknown if Hewlett Packard (which claims its configuration prevents overheating), Gateway, or Acer (which has admitted to being in talks with Sony) are going to get in on the fun. At least in HP’s case I’m a bit suspicious of their story as it is my understanding that the batteries could cause problems even when not in actual use. What gives?

Now listening to: Metallica – Battery (from Master of Puppets)
