Apple is in the middle of another lawsuit, this time claiming the company is unable to install ventilation filters in iMacs and MacBooks, causing problems that can cause screen and CPU problems, and as a consequence expensive repairs that may be paid by users. The lawsuit was published by the company that handled the case.
According to law firm Hagens Berman, Apple has failed to deal with dust accumulation, which in turn affects some of the company's most popular Macs.
"Apple is the most valuable company in the world today because consumers trust to create reliable quality products, but it has not been able to correct one of the most simple and well-known issues in the technology community – accumulation of dust, says Steve Berman, managing partner and co-founder of Hagens Berman. "This filter error costs Apple owners hundreds of dollars in repairs, and Apple refuses to take responsibility."
"We intend to hold Apple responsible for this costly mistakes that affect millions of computers, "Berman added.
The issues described by the lawsuit include lower CPU performance due to dust build-up and as a result of increased temperatures. The users have also reported that they see dark spots and staining inside the screen is thought to be a result of dust that finds its way into the unit's chassis.
The computer takes air to cool its components, but without felt r dust gets caught inside This affects the monitor and logic board on the computer, resulting in dust stuck behind the screen and rubberized motherboard, which causes the computer to run slowly and / or overheated.
In order to resolve the issue, Apple apparently charges up to $ 600 to fix such issues, with iMac and MacBook computers running back to 2013 believed to be affected. Predictably claims lawsuit for replacement of Mac owners, with reimbursement of repair costs and compensation to those who were also affected a part of the agreement. We need to see where this goes, but it's another example of an apparent design error in Apple's Mac hardware that has caused users real problems for years.
