Apple settles Performa PC Upgrade complaint

Apple settles Performa PC Upgrade complaint

According to a Reuter article:

"Apple Computer agreed Monday to offer bargain upgrades for consumers who bought its entry-level Performa computers, settling government charges it misrepresented the machines in its advertising.

The Federal Trade Commission announced that consumers who purchased a Performa 550, Performa 560 or Macintosh LC550 machine would be eligible to purchase Power PC Upgrade Kits at less than half the original list price."

The Washington Post, amongvarious other news sources, also covers this story. (Thanks, Michael Schanzer and MRP.)
