HP Laptops Too Hot to Handle

Last year HP had to recall 70,000 laptops due to overheating and possible fires (that's gotta hurt!). Now the company is recalling another 54,000 batteries for the exact same reason.

The recall affects Compaq and HP Pavilion (hey, I've got one of those!) machines. The machines were made between August 2007 and May 2008. If you have one of the puppies, a free new battery could be on its way.
