Dell laptop explodes at Japanese conference

According to INQUIRER, a laptop computer suddenly exploded into flames at a conference in Osaka, Japan.

It is quite funny as this news has not been reported within Japan, even though the accident happened in Japan… Only the news I found in Japanese is the translation of Dell’s announcement from New York by Reuters to investigate into the very computer.

Anyway, I will avoid using any laptop computer on my lap…

Dell laptop explodes at Japanese conference

INQ reader's amazing snaps
By INQUIRER newsdesk:
AN INQUIRER READER attending a conference in Japan was sat just feet away from a laptop computer that suddenly exploded into flames, in what could have been a deadly accident.
Gaston, our astonished reader reports: "The damn thing was on fire and produced several explosions for more than five minutes".
Should you witness such an event, his advice is, "Don't try anything courageous/stupid, stay away, away, away!"
"For the record, this is a Dell machine," notes Gaston. "It is only a matter of time until such an incident breaks out on a plane," he suggests.
Our witness managed to catch all the action in these amazing pictures.
"Fire extinguishers leave a mess on your suit and belongings; pack your stuff (if you can) and leave, leave, leave!" he advises.
We don't have any further details of the model of the computer in question. In light of the evidence, however, we'd suggest you avoid actually using a laptop on your lap. Ouch.
