What to Know about the Lenovo Class Action Lawsuit
A Lenovo Class Action Lawsuit was recently filed for, allegedly, using deceptive marketing as it promoted its Yoga touchscreen laptops, also sold as the “Flex 5” or “Yoga Series,” as a “2-in-1” device with “360-degree flexibility.” The Levono Lawsuit goes on to state that the company has also been accused of breaching its warranty after failing to fix these “defects.”
The devices were marketed as “laptops with touchscreen monitors that can be folded flat against the underside of the base of the machine to approximate the form of a tablet computer.” However, consumers claimed that within a month, the Lenovo Yoga touchscreen laptop was no longer working, and the screen began to flicker, freeze, and eventually blacked out entirely. The stylus that came with the product stopped working either.
The Lenovo Class Action Lawsuit also alleges that folding the laptop into a “tablet” or “tent” mode triggered the touchscreen’s defect. The case can be found under: Anthony MacKay v. Lenovo (United States) Inc., Case No. 1:20-cv-01149-UNA, D.C. DE.

Here’s what we know about the Lenovo Class Action:
The Lenovo Class Action Complaint states that “Defendant marketed, promoted, and sold the Flex 5 and Yoga 730 laptops as 2-in-1 laptops featuring high-resolution displays and monitors capable of folding into tent and tablet modes. Defendant knew that a material factor for consumers purchasing a Flex 5 or Yoga 730 was that the device possesses a monitor capable of movement into various positions and be able to consistently display visual information via a graphical user interface. The Defect, however, makes it difficult or impossible to interface with programs, watch movies, play games, or otherwise engage in a typical fashion with the Class Laptops.”
Lenovo attempted to conceal, and/or failed to disclose, to their customers about the defective nature of these Laptops, and also failed to remove the Laptops from the marketplace. Nor did the company take adequate action to remedy the defect.
Rather, Lenovo sold and serviced these Laptops even though it knew, or were reckless in not knowing, that the Defect impacted the display of the Laptops, and would ultimately result in the inability of use.
