On 8 August 2008 I reported that some MacBook Pros with the NVIDIA GeForce 8600M GT GPUs were failing prematurely. Today Dell extended the warranty on their notebooks that use the chip.
Dell will offer 12-month limited warranty enhancement to all worldwide customers of 15 laptop with defective Nvidia GPUs. These Dell laptops use nine models of graphic processor unit, only one of them is also used on MacBook Pro models (15" and 17"), sold from mid 2007 to now. It's the GeForce 8600M GT (from 128 to 512 MB). What is Apple doing for these customers and why Nvidia doesn't say the name of all defective models
