They show LG Chem, not Sony liek the Dell recall. Is Sony building the packs for Apple with LG cells, or am I missing something? Is it the same issue? Did Sony give improper specs to LG, and thus it's their problem, or did LG manuf. cells outta spec? I haven't read many reports, but most seem to just gloss over it all as a Sony problem and don't say much else.

Lag

Right now, there's a monster lag in the exchange. I've been hearing estimates of 4-6 weeks for the exchange. At my work, we have several hundred impacted machines, so this will be fun. My day was spent checking batteries. Fun fun fun!
