Class Action Lawsuit Targets Apple Over 2011 MacBook Pro Graphics Issues

Owners of the 2011 MacBook Pro model have encountered significant graphical issues due to defective hardware, prompting the initiation of a class action lawsuit aimed at securing compensation for those affected in California and Florida.

The plaintiffs, Zachary Book, Donald Cowart, and John Manners, claim that Apple made it necessary for MacBook Pro owners to bear the costs of GPU repairs after the warranty had expired, despite the apparent defectiveness of the hardware from the outset.
