Seagate Backup Plus Slim External USB 3.0 2TB Hard Drive Review
Sony laptops in electric shock risk - Sony laptops in electric shock risk
Thu, July 10 2003 | 1:23PM | PermaLink Feedback?
The problem is with faulty modems, which means that people could receive a shock when making a phone call and using the Vaio at the same time. Most of the laptops affected by the technical glitch are in Japan, with a further 3,000 in the US and 2,000 in Europe. Sony estimates the recall will cost $4.2m, (£2.8m), although analysts said it is not serious enough to harm the company's image. The Japanese company is the the world's sixth-largest seller of personal computers. In the past year, it has sold more than 3.1 million Vaio laptops across the world.
