Submission + - Mac Book Pros Might Suffer NVIDIA Failures (theinquirer.net)

An anonymous reader writes: The Inquirer has taken an electron microscope to a 15" Macbook Pro bought off-the-shelf from a California retailer to test whether the bump material that joins the chips to the circuit board is similar to that which is alleged to be the cause of many failing NVIDIA parts this summer for which they have already taken a $200M charge.

NVIDIA is currently stating that the bumps are not bad, while The Inquirer points out that there is evidence disputing some of NVIDIA's past statements on the topic. In September a lawsuit seeking class-action status was filed against NVIDIA claiming that its executives concealed the original problems for at least 8 months.
