A proposed settlement has been reached in a class action lawsuit alleging that Intel manipulated the performance benchmark scores for its first-generation Pentium 4 processors and that HP aided and abetted Intel’s allegedly unlawful conduct. Intel and HP deny any liability and all claims of misconduct and Intel contends that the performance benchmarks challenged by Plaintiffs fairly measured the performance of the Pentium 4 processor.

Deadline to Submit a Claim Form: on or before April 14, 2015



You must have either purchased a new computer equipped with a Pentium 4 processor between November 20, 2000, and December 31, 2001, or purchased a new computer equipped with a first-generation (Willamette) Pentium 4 processor or a Pentium 4 processor at speeds below 2.0 GHz between January 1, 2002, and June 30, 2002.

At least 90% of them were already disposed or recycled by now. Interesting people are reviving their 13 year old computers.

Yep. At least we have the option of becoming bloodsucking attorneys ourselves to reap such rewards.

In what way does making companies pay back a tiny fraction of the benefit the reaped from illegal practices "protecting" the consumer?


A financial hit that genuinely hurt the company might protect the consumer by discouraging such behavior in the future... but generally class actions like this aren't that.

Mainly they're ways to make lawyers rich while getting a token gesture from the guilty company (who ends up admitting no guilt by the way)
