By Gary Cutlack on at

Owners of the Sony VAIO Fit 11A are apparently being contacted by Sony, over concerns that the batteries inside may pose a fire risk. Some 26,000 Vaio models are affected, with the Panasonic-made batteries implicated in three cases of overheating and users receiving burns as a result. A return & replace scheme will be put in place soon. [WSJ via The Verge]
