Misleading battery claims might end up in lawsuit

“A couple of weeks ago, Advanced Micro Devices blew the whistle on the battery-life claims that laptop manufacturers make in their ads. The chip maker said the battery life cited in these ads cite were based on tests done in ideal conditions that users wouldn’t encounter. Quite often, actual battery performance is half the time advertised.”

Now it looks like that’s going to result in a class action lawsuit against computer makers. Girard Gibbs, a law firm that specializes in securities litigation and consumer class actions, is looking for possible plaintiffs related to the issue and is offering a “free consultation.” It’s time for the computer industry to move to regulate itself in a hurry.”
