psa: my dell is infected!

orange biohazardI knew there was a reason I took this photo over the weekend. Today I found out that the battery for my Dell is being recalled.

Potentially inffected batteries were sold with the following models of Dell notebook computers:

  • Latitude: D410, D500, D505, D510, D520, D600, D610, D620, D800, D810
  • Inspiron: 500M, 510M, 600M, 700M, 710M, 6000, 6400, 8500, 8600, 9100, 9200, 9300, 9400, E1505, E1705
  • Precision: M20, M60, M70, M90
  • XPS: XPS, XPS Gen2, XPS M170, XPS M1710

If you’ve got one of those computers, be sure you check out Dell Battery Return Program site to confirm you’ve got a biohazzard sitting on your lap.

Maybe I should get me a Mac.
