After severe customer dissatisfaction, Apple starts AMD Radeon HD 697OM video card replacement scheme for some of its 27-inch iMacs. These came on the scene in June about two years ago.
According to reports, Apple’s AMD Radeon HD 697OM video cards that went with certain 27 inch iMacs were a veritable dead end as far as functionality was concerned. They were malfunctioning and causing the screens to show a skewed pattern. There were even instances where the display unit would simply go blank. The versions of iMac that were showing this dysfunction included the world class 27 inch models. These possessed 3.1 Gigahertz Quad-Core Intel Core i5 or 3.4 Gigahertz Quad-Core Intel Core i7 processors respectively. These were there to be bought by unwary customers till the ultra-thin iMacs which arrived a year back. The offer of replacing video cards is valid for up to three years after the date of purchase. Even refunds are allowed on certain conditions.
