Apple Faces Lawsuit for 'Colorful' Advertizing

Kara Reeder

Capable of supporting "millions of colors." That's the claim made by Apple that has sparked a lawsuit. Two men have filed suit against Apple for false advertizing concerning its MacBook and MacBook Pro laptops, according to this article in SiliconRepublic.


Apparently, the laptops are capable of supporting only 262,144 colors, a far cry from "millions." MacWorld's Jason Snell has discovered this kind "over-reporting" seems to be an industry standard.


And adding insult to injury, the plaintiffs are claiming that Windows XP looks better on the display than Apple's OS operating system, which is said to appear "grainy." They go on to say that Apple has been aware of the defect, but has deleted any threads on its own support forum concerning the problem.


The litigants are seeking an injunction to prevent Apple from making these claims about its display color, and of course damages, too.
