    Samsung gets sued over Galaxy laptops that supposedly overheat

    Samsung Electronics is getting sued again. The company recently found itself at the receiving end of a class-action lawsuit in the USA, this time because of its older laptops. The lawsuit, filed in New Jersey federal court, has to do with an alleged overheating defect affecting the Galaxy Book, Galaxy Book Pro, and Galaxy Book Pro 360.

    This lawsuit seemingly concerns the original 2021 models, and plaintiff Haley Williams claims that the laptops “excessively overheat when performing basic laptop functions” and argues that the company, although aware of the alleged issue, hasn't done anything to address it.

    Whether the plaintiff's Galaxy Book always had this alleged overheating issue or if the problem developed over time is not very clear. In any case, the accuser says Samsung “had omitted to disclose material information” regarding the Galaxy Book laptops. The plaintiff demands a jury trial and requests injunctive and declaratory relief and an award of actual, compensatory, exemplary, and statutory damages. (via Top Class Actions)

    A couple of years have passed since Samsung released its original Galaxy Book series. A new Galaxy Book 3 lineup was announced on February 1 and released weeks later. The new laptops feature RTX 4000-series Nvidia graphics and the latest Intel processors. They also improve connectivity with Galaxy smartphones and offer more cross-device syncing features. As to how they manage thermals and performance, time will tell, but early reviews seem very promising.
