Gateway "believes" its notebook batteries are safe

  • Gateway, the nation's third largest PC manufacturer, today said that it "believes" that its notebook batteries are not affected by problems that prompted Dell and Apple to recall a total of almost six million notebook batteries.

    "Based on available information and our suppliers' input, we do not believe our systems are at risk for the same malfunctions that caused our competitors to issue battery recalls. It appears that a combination of factors led to the fault requiring the recalls, and this combination is not present in our systems," the company said.
