According to Yahoo news, yesterday Sony warned that the owners of some models of their 2010 Vaio C and F series laptops may face possible overheating problem due to a defective heat-monitoring chip. Apparently they are  recalling 535,000 units sold since January 2010 ( 259,000 laptops in the U.S., 103,000 in Europe, 120,000 in Asia and 52,000 in Japan).
