Get ready for a Lenovo recall?

With no surprise, rumors are being floated around the net regarding a possible Lenovo recall of Sony batteries from their laptop line.  This replacement would fall in line with companies such as Dell, Apple, and Toshiba who have all had recalls/replacements.  On Sept 16, an IBM Thinkpad T43 exploded at Los Angeles International Airport.  Reports state that Lenovo had a team of engineers and company reps onsite within 24-48hrs to analyze the situation and determine the cause.  The results and findings have yet to surface, but if this report from Australia is any indication, then we could possibly see a recall/replacement soon.

Lenovo has confirmed that the Thinkpad battery that burst into flames was the same model Sony Lithium Ion battery that forced two of the world's biggest notebook manufacturers to recall 6 million notebook computers.
