Toshiba to exchange a further 830,000 Sony batteries

Toshiba is offering to replace a further 830,000 battery packs containing cells made by Sony.

Toshiba is offering to replace a further 830,000 laptop batteries containing cells made by Sony, it said Friday. The offer covers computers sold worldwide and is separate from a similar announcement made by the company a week ago.

Toshiba is offering to exchange the batteries to ease customer concerns in the light of several recent high-profile battery recalls, it said.

"There is no safety issue, we will voluntarily exchange the battery pack used in certain notebook PCs," said Keisuke Ohmori, a spokesman for Toshiba in Tokyo.

The announcement came after Lenovo Group said it would replace batteries for 526,000 of its laptops sold in 2005 and 2006.

A week ago, Toshiba offered to exchange 340,000 notebook batteries because it said they could unexpectedly cut power, causing users to lose unsaved work.

The latest offer covers batteries in the following laptop models: Satellite T10, T11, T12, T20, A50; Tecra M3, M4, M5, M7, S3; Portege S100, M300, M400, M500; Dynabook SS LX, L10, L11, M10, M11, M35, MX, MXW; Dynabook R10; Dynabook TX/2, TX/3, TX4; Qosmio G30, F30;

MSI GT75 TITAN

I need power and lots of it. As a Front End Web developer anything less just won’t cut it which is why the MSI GT75 is an outstanding laptop for me. It’s a sleek and futuristic looking, high quality, beast that has a touch of sci-fi flare about it.

MSI GS65 Stealth Thin

If you can afford the price tag, it is well worth the money. It out performs any other laptop I have tried for gaming, and the transportable design and incredible display also make it ideal for work.
