Apple has been handed a class-action lawsuit in the state of California brought by the law firm of King & Ferlauto, reports MacCentral. The suit alleges that Apple has not supported certain G3-equipped Mac models with the same features in Mac OS X afforded to more recent G4-based systems, such as DVD playback, support for hardware graphics acceleration using OpenGL and hardware-accelerated QuickTime movie playback, while stating in a May 1998 press release that Mac OS X would be “fully-optimized” for G3-based systems. The suit seeks damages in the form of the purchase price of the G3-based systems and the cost of upgrading to Mac OS X, and incidental and consequential damages.
