Apple has been slapped with a class-action lawsuit coming from two MacBook and MacBook Pro owners. The pair is charging the company with falsely advertising the quality and capabilities of the displays used in the notebooks, according to AppleInsider.
The lawsuit was filed on May 3rd with the Superior Court of California for the County of San Diego by Fred Greaves and Dave Gatley, who are asking for multiple forms of relief and reimbursement along with an injunction that would prevent Apple from continuing to market notebook displays with claims that they support “millions of colors” and offer views “simply unavailable on other portables.”
The specific complaint is that Apple’s notebook displays can only display the “illusion of millions of colors through the use of a software technique referred to as ‘dithering,’ which causes nearby pixels on the display to use slightly varying shades of colors that trick the human eye into perceiving the desired color even though it is not truly that color.”
