Dell Laptops
Contest Directions: If you happen to hear a series of explosions in offices or see houses and internet cafes burned to the ground, don't worry,- it's just exploding batteries in Dell laptops. This week Dell announced a recall of over 4 million laptops - biggest computer-related recall ever - due to lithium-ion batteries that cause their Dell machines to overheat, catch fire, or even explode. I guess it just shows that Dell laptop customers will finally get a good BANG! for their money. To make a long story short Dell now gives customers two options - either recall your laptop, or pull the fuse and run for your lives. Dell may well have forgotten the golden rule of laptop business that putting grenades in place of laptop batteries is a No-No. In this contest you are asked to save all us poor Dell customers from yet another disaster and warn us in advance how Dell laptops are REALLY unsafe - what's wrong with their batteries, monitors, keyboards, DVD/CD writers or any additional Dell laptop's devices. Feel free to change Dell logo on laptops to reflect their 'safety policies'. You can also show Dell laptops on fire / smoke during presentations, conferences, etc. Remember to keep your entries to Dell laptops only - desktops or other laptop manufacturers are not allowed.
P.S. I tried contacting Dell customer service to see if they liked our contest, and they told me I will "BURN IN DELL" for that...

This contest is fueled by the following news: Dell, the mammoth computer manufacturer, has commenced the largest recall in the history of the personal computer. A number of Dell laptops have caught on fire, apparently due to faulty batteries. Dell is recalling 4.1 million of the laptop batteries that it included within its computers. The batteries were made by Sony. These batteries are deemed a fire risk. Free replacements are being offered. The batteries were sold independently or came with Dell laptop computers between April of 2004 and July of 2006. They are described as lithium-ion batteries and can be found and were utilized in XPS, Inspiron, Latitude, and Precision Mobile Workstation models units. The issue hit the news when a laptop burst into a flaming mess at a conference in Japan. Other laptop owners came forward to claim that they had endured similar experiences. A spokesperson for Dell indicated that in isolated instances a short circuit might cause the batteries to overheat, ending in smoke and fire. Dell is asking customers to visit the Dell Internet website to see if they own an affected battery.
