Acer is clean

Saturday, October 28th, 2006

Alright, this is a blog post after ages. It is really tough to get out of the shell, once you are inside it. I hope you will agree, if you don’t – watch the Indian Cricket team in action tomorrow.

As for Acer being clean, rather the batteries in the laptops they sell. They have finally confirmed they do not need to recall any batteries they used in their laptops. From exploding batteries to laptops on fire due to them, they were all in news over the last couple of months. During all this time, I eagerly awaited for some word from Acer about their battery recall, if any. No, I am not an over cautious person. I only aspired to get the batteries replaced for free. Anything to replace the dying batteries which give a backup of max 15 minutes. Can’t blame me for thinking like that :)

So, what I hoped for isn’t coming. Feels great to own something which has no issues. As for Sony, they are just cursed as the battery recall number nears a 8 digit numeral. Great!

PS: Very few Acer’s used Sony batteries. Sanyo mostly. But then again I am just bitching. Apple, Dell, Fujitsu, Gateway, Hitachi, IBM/Lenovo, Panasonic, Sharp, Sony, Toshiba all have had issues. Acer shouldn’t miss a trick in the trade and make a most of things going in their favor. Best of Luck!
