    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...
