Class action suit filed against Apple for 2011 MacBook Pro GPU defects

<div class="field field-name-body field-type-text-with-summary field-label-hidden"><div class="field-items"><div class="field-item even" property="content:encoded"><p><a href='http://www.imore.com/law-firm-files-class-action-suit-against-apple-2011-macbook-pro-gpu-defects' title="Class action suit filed against Apple for 2011 MacBook Pro GPU defects"><img src='http://www.imore.com/sites/imore.com/files/styles/large_wm_brw/public/field/image/2014/07/macbook_pro_hero_fixed.jpg?itok=2l7uwQ2P' />[/url]</p> <p>Washington DC-based law firm Whitfield, Bryson &amp; Mason announced that it had filed a class action lawsuit against Apple over widespread graphical issues encountered on 2011 MacBook Pros with AMD GPUs.</p> <!--break--> <p>The issue appears to stem from poor soldering between the GPU and logic board. According to the lawsuit:</p>
<p>When the lead-free solder cracks it degrades the data flow between the GPU and the logic board. A small crack can cause the laptop's graphics to become distorted on occasion. But as cracks in the lead-free solder propagate over time, the graphics issues worsen and system stability decreases, until eventually the computer is completely unusable. This defect related to the lead-free solder connecting the GPU to the logic board (the "Graphics Defect") limits all computers at the point of sale forward from performing as advertised and warranted.</p>
<p>The news comes after a change.org petition calling for Apple to replace or fix all 2011 MacBook Pros that experienced the issue has reached over 20,000 signatures.</p> <p>The lawsuit is currently being filed on behalf of customers in California and Florida, and is being considered for filing in other parts of the country as well.</p> <p>If you want to take a look at the lawsuit, you can find it here (warning: it's a hefty read). Do you think this lawsuit will go anywhere? Let us know in the comments.</p> <p>Source: Whitfield Bryson &amp; Mason</p> </div></div></div><div id="comment-wrapper-nid-28001"></div><img width='1' height='1' src='http://tipb.com.feedsportal.com/c/33998/f/616881/s/3fece273/sc/21/mf.gif' border='0'/><br clear='all'/>
