At a recent conference in Japan, a Dell laptop suddenly exploded and burst into flames with no apparent explanation. One witness reported, “The damn thing was on fire and produced several explosions for more than five minutes”. 

Fortunately, no one was near the laptop when the incident occurred.

The witness – who identifies himself only as “Guilhem” – offers this advice should this happen to you. “Don’t try anything courageous/stupid, stay away, away, away!”  He notes that the “laptop of death” was indeed a Dell, although the exact model was not specified. “It is only a matter of time until such an incident breaks out on a plane,” he adds.

In the meantime, you might want to avoid actually using a laptop on your lap…
