NVIDIA has reached a settlement in the class action suit about the faulty GPUs the company shipped between 2006 and 2009. Owners of Apple, Dell or HP laptops with affected GPUs are eligible for some form of compensation, you can find the full details at the NVIDIA GPU Settlement website.
. In the case of Apple and Dell laptops, that includes a replacement of the GPU or MCP, while users of an affected HP laptop will actually get a full replacement laptop "similar in kind and value." Anyone that has already paid to have their laptop repaired due to the GPU issue is also entitled to a full reimbursement provided they have the necessary documentation for the repairs. Even if you are covered, however, you'll still have to wait a bit longer to actually get any compensation -- a final hearing is scheduled for December 20th, and claims will only begin sometime after that.
