Apple has launched a repair program to address the 2011 Macbook Pro GPU issues and this is a point in time worth celebrating. Well done Apple.
It is, however bittersweet. It's taken multiple years to focus the lens on this issue and many may say, well what's the point in repairing 2-3 year old hardware, but luckily we know a 2-3 year old MAC is still an excellent and relevant machine so I say it's worth it.
Personally, I'm applaud this as I can now tell people that there is hope to repair their machine rather than the awkward task of telling someone their beloved MBPro cannot be fixed without an expensive trip to Apple.
So what's the deal? Well, if you have an eligible serial number you can either receive repairs to your machine, at no expense to yourself, or receive a credit for repairs already done.
Visit Apple here for specific details and resurrect those faulty machines, or at least stake your claim for a refund!
