Apple is establishing a Repair Extension Program for 2013 Mac Pro models, according to details provided in a leaked internal notice. It is said Apple and Authorized Service Providers will be able to repair certain Mac Pro systems manufactured early last year, after determining that graphics cards used in the production of the Mac Pro at that time were error-prone, causing freezing, restarts, video distortions, and in some cases preventing the Mac Pro from booting entirely.
