It'd be awesome if MaxPC could give some publicity to this issue:
Basically, a whole lot of HP laptops were sold with defective nVidia chipsets/GPUs. There's some cheap solder that they used that apparently can melt at fairly low temperatures (for solder) that can be reached by a laptop, and so of course when this happens stuff breaks. Also, apparently some of their heatsinks actually have a kind of a gap between the GPU and the heatsink, because their thermal pad isn't big enough. I have a laptop model that has been affected, but mine personally is still fine. However, it seems like this is a really big issue and HP has been ignoring people who have problems for a long time. I think it would help if more and more organizations and publications started bugging them about it and bring publicity to the issue. Could The Dog please do an article on this problem?
There's a lot of information about the problems on this site: http://hplies.com/
