Apple Recalling Early PowerBook 5300s

Send Article to a Friend

Apple Recalling Early PowerBook 5300s -- MacWEEK reports that Apple is quietly recalling some early PowerBook 5300s shipped on or before 12-Nov-95 and with serial numbers at FC545 or lower. Before you ask, no, the problem doesn't have anything to do with fire, but rather a potential lock-up during intense use of a PC Card and expansion-bay devices like the floppy drive. Users experiencing problems can call the Apple Assistance Center at 800/767-2775 to get their machines serviced under warranty. [GD]
