Investigation and pending class action against Dell alleging that its Inspirion line of lap top computers are defective.
It is alleged that Inspiron 1100, 1150, 5100 and 5160 notebooks Inc. are defective and that Dell engaged in misconduct in connection with the design, manufacture, warranting, advertising and selling of these computers. As set forth in the complaint, plaintiffs allege Dell Inspiron 1100, 1150, 5100 and 5160 notebooks are designed and manufactured with three uniform and inherent defects:
1. The notebooks' cooling systems are inadequate to dissipate the heat generated through normal use;
2. The power supply system prematurely fails when used as intended;
3. The motherboards on the notebooks prematurely fail.
These alleged defects cause Dell Inspiron 1100, 1150, 5100 and 5160 notebooks to shut down unexpectedly or fail to boot up and/or the batteries will fail to hold a charge, or will hold a charge for only a short time, well before the expected end of the battery's life.
The class action lawsuit also allege that Dell concealed the true defective nature of its Inspiron 1100, 1150, 5100 and 5160 notebooks, and failed to recall the notebooks or take other adequate remedial action. Instead, plaintiffs charge Dell sold and serviced Inspiron 1100, 1150, 5100 and 5160 notebooks even though it knew that the notebooks would prematurely fail.
