A wiki has emerged pushing Apple to acknowledge a defect in its 17″ 1.67 GHz PowerBook G4 laptops.
According to MacNN, hundreds, if not thousands, of users who purchased the laptop have been experiencing what are known as “Bridget Riley” vertical lines on the display. The problem manifests itself as one or more vertical lines appearing. These lines span the full color spectrum and can appear as any color.
The problem appears to predominantly appear in the M9689 model, which is represented by serial numbers often beginning with “W85”. Although Apple has yet to officially recognize the problem and offer to investigate claims, the creators of the site hope that the company will eventually initiate a free repair program for affected units.
