Sony announced Wednesday that it plans to recall around 535,000 Vaio laptops due to overheating problems.
The company said that a flaw in the temperature control can create an excessive buildup of heat that distorts the shape of the unit. Though Sony hasn't heard of any problems with the Vaio in Japan, it said it received 39 complaints of overheating and distortion from customers abroad.
