Just an observation, but it seems that the bad publicity has been directed towards Dell all day in the news, even though Sony is the manufacturer of the batteries.

Yep my daughters is one of them also. Mine missed out. Dang cause I sure could use a new set of batteries since mine are only good for ten minutes now.
