preview-mm-12838792871418409201A second class action lawsuit has been filed against Apple over the 2011 MacBook Pro. The new case originates in Canada, specifically from a Montreal-based lawfirm, Lex Group Attorneys. Like the original US case, the new suit states that Apple shipped MacBooks with bad soldering of an AMD graphics chip to the logic board, and that this led to a variety of graphics problems. To get it fixed, some customers were forced to pay out-of-warranty repair costs that could scale up to $600, despite Apple apparently being at fault.

Apple is normally hesitant to engage in mass repair and replacement programs, although it has occasionally for less expensive parts such as power adapters and iPhone batteries. Should the plaintiffs in Canada or the US win, Apple will likely be required to compensate MacBook buyers and offer repairs/replacements where possible. It may choose to soften the blow by settling out of court.
