...I don't think I'll be taking your
word for it, -Specially seeing as how there's a 15 page long thread about this started by a laptop repair technician
who shares those concerns.
Whether or not the mag alloy chassis does indeed offer an easier escape route for renegade electric current, nobody's convincing me that there is no threat posed to the internal components when many of them are so dlicate that they operate at millivolts, and there have been so many unexplained black-screen LCD & video card deaths. The fact that many, many
people are experiencing this "extra" electricity floating around in their systems is a most plausible suspect for a variety of problems, no?
Perhaps these poor bastards whose screens died simply as a result of hooking up to an external monitor or TV had a problem with this electricity jumping from the chassis to one of the VGA or HDMI pins.
components are packaged in static shielding baggies.
