I'm glad you seem to know so much about what happened with my laptop, Argh, but the technicians at Sager disagree with you. They told me it fried because the fan stuck.
Maybe the P4 EE CPU I had fried before the fan could cool it sufficiently. Or maybe the fan was simply defective. Either way, since neither you nor I got to inspect it personally perhaps we should give the Sager techs the benefit of the doubt on this.
