An unhappy Apple loyalist who bought three of the company’s 2013 line of Mac Pro computers is now suing the firm, alleging that repeated malfunctions occurred in the devices.
The computers that allegedly “malfunction, freeze (and) crash” cost between $5,000 and $10,000 each, according to the lawsuit.
Douglas Kaplan filed the proposed class-action lawsuit in Los Angeles Superior Court, alleging breach of warranty and violations of the unfair competition law. He’s seeking unspecified damages as well as an injunction preventing Apple from selling and distributing the Mac Pro computers with the alleged defects.
An Apple representative did not immediately reply to a request for comment.
The graphics processing units and the random-access memory functions on the 2013 Mac Pros are both defective, causing the computers to “malfunction, freeze, crash” and ultimately become unusable, the suit alleges.
“These defects are especially troublesome for creative professionals who rely on the stability of these computers for their livelihood,” the lawsuit that was filed Thursday states.
Repeated screen malfunctions, processing defects and system failures occurred in Kaplan’s three Mac Pros this year and in 2015, the suit states.
