Law firm mulls possible suit over problems with 2011 MacBook Pro

A DC-based legal firm, Whitfield Bryson & Mason, is considering a possible class-action lawsuit over graphics problems with the 2011 MacBook Pro. In a post to a Facebook group organized around the issue, the firm says it has "commenced an investigation leading us to your community." The firm adds that while other posts are providing information, it wants people to fill out a survey to "determine if any legal claims may exist." The company's track record includes suits against companies like Google and Lenovo.

Apple has so far declined to offer free repairs or replacements for affected Pros, despite a recent surge in complaints. Faulty AMD GPUs appear to be causing artifacts, blank screens, or outright crashes. Because that part is attached to the logic board, paying for a repair is expensive, potentially making it more worthwhile to simply upgrade.

    Yeah, maybe you can roll this class-action in with the one from the guy whose stock suffered due to the Apple poaching scandal...that way all of this stuff can get tossed out at the same time.
