Dell, Apple Laptops Banned by More Airlines

Wired magazine’s Gear Factor reports Virgin Atlantic is now following suit, after Korean Airlines first prohibited the use of Apple and Dell Laptops due risk of fire.

Ironically, Sony laptops, (the manufacturer of the batteries) appear to remain unaffected to date. What’s even better, is this support news from 2003 article that I found from Sony, warning to users of VAIO laptops to not use batteries manufactured by anyone other than Sony because they can cause excessive heat, fumes, fire and battery disintegration.
