    It looks like my Dell Latitude D610. Oh crap! I wonder if insurance will cover such accidents?

    IF you're still alive to claim the insurance. imagine it exploding right at your face.

    What was the combustible substance in the laptop that could create such an explosion?

    I read somewhere that somebody's pants caught fire while he was using a laptop on his lap and in the process lost his ability to produce offsprings....

    Hehehe

    Li-ion, rubber, plastic.

    Our laptops are one heck of a firehouse.

    This really isnt that clever a thing to say, just because one dell exploded doesnt mean they all will, so you shouldnt boycott them due to a one off incident.

    A good example, do you fly? Many variants of planes have crashed and exploaded into flames, doesnt mean you stop flying, still the safest form of transport.

    Don't worry, I didn't mean what I said. Maybe I didn't put a smiley in the opening post, so here's some to make up for it.

    EDIT: grammar errors

    Nah!, its probrably some highly confidential information on the laptop. Before it explode there should be some message like "This message will self destruct in X seconds"
