Dell demo Misssion Impossible technology 

This laptop will self-distruct in five minutes....

The Inquirer has the pictures.

Looks like you ought to take Dell's recall program seriously if you have a Latitude D410, D505, D510, D600, D610, D800 or D810,an Inspiron 510M, 600M, 6000, 8600, 9200, 9300, XPS Gen 2 or a Dell Precision M20 or M70.

Look up Lithium-ion batteries on Google/Wikipedia for more info on the chemistry and the potential hazard.

BTW, the Inquirer looks uncannily like the Register because it was set by Mike Magee, who founded the Register.
