Some sony laptops sold between May 2007 and July 2008 could over heat (issues unrelated to the batteries) and need to be repaired by Sony (which is free). More than 200 notebooks reported with overheating issues already. This might effect some of the Sony Vaio notebooks sold in Saudi Arabia ( or even imported from the US for example).
