Apple or an Apple Authorized Service Provider will repair affected
MacBook Pro systems, free of charge. See below for details on affected
models and service options.

As of February 20, 2015, the repair process will be available in the
U.S. and Canada. In other countries, it will be available as of
February 27, 2015.

Distorted or scrambled video on the computer screen

computer is on
Computer restarts unexpectedly

Last November Apple replaced my 2006 gen-1 iPod nano with a current
model, due to danger of battery overheat. (I suspect a legal action.)
