Gateway is directly participating in Sony's program and as such won't incur any direct costs themselves, and anyone with a defective unit will have it replaced for free. If you happen to own one of the above affected models, it's probably in your best interest to get your replacement battery. You can read the official announcement and check to see if your laptop is eligible on Gateway's site using their exchange tool.
