Macbook Owner With Defective GPU Beats Apple In Court 280

New submitter RockoW writes "A few years ago, Apple sold defective computers of the MacBook Pro line. They had the defective Nvidia 8600M GT GPU. In this case Apple refused to take the computer back and issue me a refund. Instead, they promised to replace the 8600M GT boards when they failed, up to four years from the date of purchase. Three years later, the MacBook Pro failed and they refused to replace it. This guy took them to the court and won by their own means."

    That can't be right...

    How could that customer create forgeries and attack Apple and get away with it?!

    The nerve of some people.

    Agreed. Fuck this guy.

    He should be banished from Apple Island and be forced to walk the cursed earth... using Windows Phone.

    So many of you marketing haters forget that their gear actually fucking performs, esp. in the hands of a skilled user.

    Mod up, we have someone who knows how to hold their iToys right! Everyone, crowd around his wisdom and experience, we have much to learn.

    And lo, it is written in the Book of Jobs that whosoever should cast aspersions upon the Name of Apple and contradict the infallible Word of Dogcow shall be cast from the Kingdom of iHeaven to forever walk the cursed earth with phones containing the mark of the Green Beast, That Which Holds Back Enlightenment. And when the time of His second coming occurs, the earth-walkers and their foul Green Beast shall be destroyed by His Disapproving Glare and the believers shall inherit the iEarth. So it was written, so shall it be done in the name of our LORD, Steven Jobs, sosumi. Let us pray.

    I think that forcing Windows Phone on him counts as cruel and unusual punishment.

    Thats the problem. The lawyers made millions and all Apple got was a $10 coupon off thier next nvidia purchase.

    I find it sad that I actually want to applaud you on here for managing to distinguish your personal anecdotal experience from the given situation and make clear, sound judgements based on available information. Did you RTFA too??

    The one thing I don't understand is his comment that it might be difficult to collect the award. In the UK, you can get bailiffs in to seize goods to the value of the court award, or if you are feeling really evil, for amounts over £750 (about $1300) you can apply to have the company made bankrupt unless they immediately pay up.

    It has been known for people with awards against major supermarkets to get the bailiffs to turn up at a large store one day, and either empty all the tills, or remove bottles of alcohol sufficient to cover the debt - usually much to the amusement of watching customers.

    Is this not possible in his part of the USA?
