    Lenovo have announced a voluntary recall of their 5th generation ThinkPad X1 Carbon laptops due to a loose screw which could cause overheating and potentially be a fire hazard. The recall only applies to units manufactured between 1st December 2016 and 31st October 2017. Despite this being a voluntary recall, affected users are advised to stop using their laptop immediately.


    When stories like this pop up you can't help but think of the disaster that was Samsung's Note 7 recall, but despite the similarities Lenovo has received praise for their quick response to the issue.

    You can get more information at Lenovo's product recall page here.
