    • C.A. says:

      Really Valerie thomas????? You post your home address on the internet for everyone to see?? Not smart! Posting here does nothing as far as getting in on the claim. Follow directions. Click the link to the claim site/form and fill it out, this is just an information site. And good god woman please never put your home address out like that agian, there are many many crazy people on the interwebs. 99% are harmless but theres always that 1%

    • me says:

      Thanks for the address

  4. Diane says:

    Leaving a comment on a website that simply lists the settlements will probably get you nowhere if you’re trying to make a claim. You need to go to the settlement website they provided above, and see what you have to do to ‘file a claim’- generally it’s fill out a more extensive claim form with model numbers, store purchased and detailed contact information.

    SHAME ON INTEL PENTIUM 4

  7. Mikaela says:

    Why not Illinois?? I bought a Sony Vaio Desktop with that processor back in 2000 or so.

    ADMIN – Hi Mikaela,

    When a national class action settles, they notify all the state attorney generals and give them an opportunity to comment. My guess is that the Illinois attorney general objected to the settlement and there will be a separate deal hashed out for that state.

  17. Momma Zaas says:

    You folks DO realize that the proposed settlement is $15… you’re not getting reimbursed for the purchase of the computer. And for all you people silly enough to post your address on the web, you will probably be amazed at the increase in junk mail you shall soon receive.

    “…a man who will not read is no better off than one who cannot.”

    • regina says:

      I hope you bought all four at the same time. If you didn’t then I’m curious…. Did it really take four tries before you finally realized it might be a good idea to buy something different?
