    I can substantiate that their own first-party battery explodes, too. These machines are a time bomb. I've got debris on my floors, ciling and walls. There's balck soot covering all my furniture and melted balck plastic stuck in paintings and lampshades in the living room. The computer has blown itself to smithereens. Do not buy from this company unless you're planning on taking up terrorist activities.
