    We have D510's and D505's as part of our LEA's LfT program. I've already checked them all once. I guess I'll be doing it again.

    We've found five with the affected codes so far. However only one of them actually needs replacing.

    However there are another 50 laptops out there with possible dodgy batteries so I'm expecting another few at least.

    Yeah, that's the thing though. I can't realistically do anything about this until september. Hopefully no teachers will be blown up in the meantime.
