Jherara -- Do you know if this applies to ALL power cables? or is fujitsu the only company that manages to use this particular manufacturing method that seems kind of dangerous? I feel like if this is something that all the computer manufacturers do the same, then it's probably not as bad as fujitsu might be making it out to be. If it's specific to them however, then this could be some serious problems. I know there's no way I'll remember to take such care with my power cord every time I touch it (plus I throw it in my backpack or lie it on top of my computer or whatever, and that then could "contaminate" pretty much anything in my house). Do you think you could post here the contact information for the people at Fujitsu that you talked to? I'm suddenly much more aprehensive about the expected receipt of my T4215 next friday.
