$70 Million Pay-Out Settles Lenovo Lawsuit

A class-action lawsuit, which has been ongoing in the USA for more than a year, is now being settled by Lenovo. The suit said that the company’s Ideapad U310 and U410 ultrabooks had an inherent design flaw, making it ‘nearly impossible’ to remain connected to a WiFi network. Around 83,000 devices were affected. Lenovo has agreed to pay $70 million to settle the suit. As part of the deal, the company is offering a repair; a cash refund of $100; or $250 of credit towards another Lenovo product. In addition, all affected customers can file for a 100% reimbursement for any previous repair expenses.
