If you bought an Acer Notebook computer pre-installed with Microsoft Windows Vista, you may be entitled to a class action settlement award worth up to $100…
In Wolph v. Acer America Corp., plaintiffs alleged that Acer notebook computers did not contain sufficient memory to properly run the pre-installed operating system, including Microsoft Windows Vista Home Premium, Business, and/or Ultimate operating systems (“Vista Premium OS”). Plaintiffs claim that per Microsoft’s requirements, a computer must have more than 1 gigabyte (“GB”) of RAM in order to properly run the Vista Premium OS. The Acer Notebooks covered in this lawsuit contain 1 GB or less of RAM to be shared between the system and the graphics. Plaintiffs claim that as a result of this insufficient system memory, Acer’s Notebooks suffered from freezing, crashes, lock-ups, and other poor performance. See the Legal Notice for the models at issue.
The Acer Notebooks at issue in this case include some, but not all, of the computers with the following model numbers:
Eligible class members can select one of the following awards:
(a) A 16 GB USB Flash Drive with ReadyBoost technology;
(b) A check for $10;
(c) A check for up to $100 as reimbursement for Class Members who, before April 25, 2013, paid for Notebook performance repairs in an effort to resolve performance problems due to RAM; or
(d) A compatible 1 GB or 2 GB laptop memory DIMM for Class Members who still own their Notebook that will allow the computer to operate with 2 GB of RAM.
