The lack of filters from dust leads to damage to the iMac and MacBook. Apple of course
Law firm Hagens Berman has accused Apple of intentionally refusing to equipping computers with filters to protect from dust. This affects the performance of the devices and on the screen appear indelible stains.
A complaint to Apple regarding the iMac and MacBook advanced by law firm Hagens Berman Sobol Shapiro, which deals with lawsuits of this kind. Earlier, the firm won a famous case against Apple about the purchase of electronic books for $ 450 million dollars. Since then, Hagens Berman has participated in other litigation against the Corporation from Cupertino, including the slowing of the iPhone.
In recent Hagens Berman lawsuit claims that the MacBook and iMac, released in 2013, do not have the necessary filters to protect against dust, which ultimately leads to the appearance of black spots on the display and performance issues.
“The owners of iMac and MacBook reported dark spots and stains on the screens as well as excessive performance degradation related to the lack of a filter on Apple computers. As is known, the technique consumes air to cool their components, but without the filter the dust gets inside, resulting in a slow computer and overheating.”
In addition, Hagens Berman States that “Apple refuses to acknowledge the shortcomings” and instead makes the affected customers to pay “more than $ 500 to fix a defect of the screen, or even more if they want to replace components that affect the speed and performance of your computer”.
In the framework of the class action Hagens Berman hopes that Apple will refund to affected users the repair costs and will also compensate all inconveniences.
“We believe that Apple is obliged to indemnify the buyers of these premium high-performance computers for widespread defect”.
