A Los Angeles Superior Court judge on Monday gave final approval for the class-action settlement that will allow some Mac OS X owners to get a refund for the operating system. The settlement calls for Apple to refund the cost of Mac OS X (up to US$129) to owners of some G3-based Macs who turn in their CDs. Those who feel that Mac OS X impaired their ability to run certain applications—but want to keep Mac OS X—can get a $25 e-coupon for use at the online Apple Store. Apple also agreed to pay $350,000 to the law firm of King & Ferlauto.
