After speaking with my lawyer (who happens to be my brother) I have decided to file a lawsuit against Apple for fraud. When I purchased my Mac Pro (which is a Mac Pro 1,1) it was represented that it was a 64-bit system, not a 64-bit system with 32-bit limitations. I am now prevented from being able to upgrade my 64-bit machine to the 64-bit only operating system, Mountain Lion, due to a policy decision made by Apple AND fraud by misrepresenting the capabilities of this machine when it was sold to me. I feel that I have the right to receive what was represented to me, a 64-bit system. Nice way to try to force hardware sales Apple. We have not yet decided if we wish to make this a class action (which it is looking like we might but there are some requirements my brother is still looking into) to seek relief for all of us that were mislead or if I am doing this as an individual action. If you are interested in participating in this action with me if I decide to do this as a non class action suit please PM me so I have contact information for you in the future. This should not be that expensive of a suit because I have all of the old Apple website pages from the time period and other advertising they submitted. It all pushed the Mac Pro as a fully functional 64-bit system. It is a very focused lawsuit with very limited claims. I will carry the burden of the cost of the suit and am not looking for money from you. Apple, I am very disappointed with your company. Now I guess your business model permits for false advertising and misleading your customers. I have decided I am not going to take this without a fight. I have owned (and still do except for the iPhone) 3 iPhones, 2 iPads, a Macbook Pro, a Mac Pro and a Apple TV. I have been a good customer but now I am feeling very taken advantage of and I am very disappointed. I paid for a 64-bit functioning system not a non-functional 32-bit/64-bit hybrid.
