The last three vendors on my list…

The last blog today I PROMISE. Three more manufacturers please – if you have any of the laptop models below:

Gateway: CX200, CX210, E100M, M250, M255, M280, M285, M465, M685, MP8708, NX260, NX510, NX560, NX860, NX100, MX1025, MX6918b, and MX1020j
Sony: VAIO: VGN-FE550G, VGN-FE570G, VGN-T240P, VGN-T250, VGN-T250P, VGN-T260P, VGN-T270P, VGN-T340P, VGN-T350, VGN-T350P, VGN-T360P, VGN-T370P
Apple: MacBook Pro (the only ACPI model affected)

Then please, (you know the drill), lshal output to richard_at_hughsie_dot_com with [fire] in the subject.

For all those getting a little peeved with all my posts on exploding batteries : I apologise. There have been over 7,000,000 of these faulty units sold worldwide – and if we assume 1% of these are running an up to date Linux, that's nearly 70,000 people that might need notifying.

Without the help of people reading p.g.o none of this stuff would be possible. When these three vendors are sorted – I'll go back to blogging once a month…

EDIT: Please stop the Gateway emails (just committed to hal-info), but I still need more data for Apple and Sony. Thanks.
