I had an HP dv6000 (Intel, Core 2) which suffered from a battery failure, in this case no capacity after previously working fine for about a year.
Surprise, battery recall, 4 weeks later (sea mail) having sent the old battery back ages earlier I got a nice fresh one in the post. Kudos to HP for supporting their antique products!
Also had the same thing with a Toshiba tablet PC, sadly this one got sold on before I heard about the recall. This was the one with the infamous "flaky touchscreen" bug requiring periodic reseating of the 42 way *2 ribbon connectors.
