iBuyPower Battalion Touch laptop lid draws blood, prompts replacement


Sure, you might expect your laptop to overheat or explode at any moment -- but cut you with a seemingly harmless logo? That's the strange but true case of iBuyPower's Battalion Touch CZ-10, at least, which left one Laptop Magazine reviewer with a nasty gash (that may or may not have required Band-Aid attention) after he decided to inspect a sliver of the "W" that appeared to be peeling off. For its part, iBuyPower says that it has since stopped using the aluminum logo in favor of a plate-style label with rounded edges, and that less than 1% of shipped systems used the troublesome logo. Anyone stuck with one of those is advised to contact iBuyPower for a replacement before it's too late.
