Thanks for this, we have about 40 Thinkpad T420s.
Looks like i'll be checking laptops today

Luckily, with the little downloadable tool, it takes about 30 seconds to check a machine. Checked ours already.

Yeah I just did one laptop, it doesn't take long. My problem is going to be getting the teachers to hand over the laptops.

I find telling them I need to check to see if their battery might burst into flames on their lap usually provides suitable encouragement...
