Northern California District Court Judge Edward Davila has sided with plaintiffs who are suing Apple over defective MacBook Pros. Due to a malfunction, the illumination in the lower part takes the form of stage light, and then completely breaks down.
The prosecution argued that Apple thoroughly tested the MacBook Pro before selling it, so it should have known about the problem. The court confirmed that Apple was aware of the problem when selling the MacBook.
The Court considers that the pre-test allegations, combined with the substantive customer complaints, are sufficient to show that Apple had exclusive knowledge of the alleged defect.

In addition, the users who purchased the laptop described the marriage on an Internet forum, but their messages were deleted, the prosecution says.
The lawsuit is not over yet, the plaintiffs are demanding reimbursement of the costs of repairing the MacBook and extending the warranty, now it applies only to 13-inch MacBook Pros.
