Sony has begun a voluntary recall of 438,000 Vaio laptop computers, 72,800 of which are in the US, because of potential overheat issues.

The models affected include the VGN-TZ100, VGN-TZ200, VGN-T300, VGN-TZ2000 and the problem is related to “irregularly positioned wires near the computer’s hinge and/or disloged screw inside the hinge” which can cause a short circuit and result in the computer overheating, possibly burning the user.
