The report of an exploding laptop at a conference in Osaka, Japan, accompanied by digital photos, was first published on technology industry news Web site The Inquirer last week.

"We have captured the notebook and have begun investigating the event," Dell spokeswoman Anne Camden said, confirming the computer was made by Dell but declining to specify the model.

They expect so much power out of batteries these days and they keep getting smaller and smaller...I remember a couple months ago some girl got her fingers partially blown off when a cellphone battery exploded. Maybe thats why they are called notebooks now instead of laptops?
