Well technically it would take longer than that since the movie didn't broadcast until after it was released in 1990. But going by the assumption that Hollywood is magical and movies release everywhere within weeks of the premier, then yes we could see this happen just like I stated.

I remember a certain model of HP laptop from a few years back that had a bad overheating problem. It was due to a defect in the design of the product. HP did nothing to fix it. This isn't the only problem Dell has had either, they had a BTX style desktop that would lose it's ability to see the USB keyboard and mouse. All it would do is say it couldn't see the mouse or keyboard and to please press F1. Call Dell and they would cancel your warranty and basically tell you to go stuff it. Acer had an entire line of laptops that would stop turning on after about a year of use. I have a stack of them in the corner. The list goes on and on.
