Sony Admits to 14 Defective NVIDIA Notebooks

According to Charlie over at SemiAccurate, Sony has admitted that fourteen of its laptops with NVIDIA chipsets in them are defective. Hit the link to see the complete list of affected models.

Can you say, "I told you so?", the Nvidia defective chip train marches onward under a cloak of aggravated customer abuse. The short story can be found on Sony's Club Vaio site. The spokeswhatever who goes by Thalamus says, "for those that are not aware, Sony have recently released a statement confirming that some Vaio models can have distorted video, random characters or blank screen issues due to failure of the NVIDIA graphics chip."
