  1. If you bought an Acer laptop in the past year and have noticed that it is toastier than you'd expect, it may not be just your imagination. Acer has recently issued a recall notice for a handful of their Aspire models, warning people that a few versions of the laptops have issues with overheating. In this case, five different models of the Aspire are affected. Acer has pieced together a site where you can submit the serial number of your laptop to see if you are affected, in which case Acer presumably replaces it.
