The company says it’s in the process of creating a program to repair or replace the computers, or will refund their purchase price.

The packs included in some of Sony’s Vaio Fit 11A models, which were released in February, were provided by a third-party supplier. If the packs overheat, it could cause burns to the laptop’s housing, Sony said Friday.

It plans to make an announcement on the repair program within two weeks.
