Acer's issued a voluntary recall for some of its Aspire
laptops -- all of which were manufactured before September 15th of this year. It seems that some of them are experiencing an overheat
of the microphone cable after "repeated" and "extreme" pressure is applied to the left palm rest. The affected models include the AS3410, AS3810T, AS3810TG, AS3810TZ and AS3810TZG. Acer's set up a website where you can enter the serial number of your device to see if yours might be one of the affected.
