Do you have one of those defective NVIDIA laptops?

Engadget's got a few links to HP and Dell websites showing you which laptops are affected by the NVIDIA mobile GPU overheating problem. Laptops can get mighty hot and even the mine with the ATI Mobility chipset gets pretty toasty when playing games. I can only imagine how hot the NVIDIA ones get to make it shut down. NVIDIA's been having some rough times lately with AMD coming on strong with their Radeon 4850 and Radeon 4870 cards. Now they seem to have problems with a large portion of their mobile GPUs out in the wild. Were you affected by one of the faulty NVIDIA chips?
