Alan Vitt purchased an iBook G4 laptop computer from Apple, Inc. Shortly after the one- year warranty expired, the laptop failed to work due to a weakness in the product manufacture.

Vitt claimed that Apple’s descriptions of the laptop as ­“ durable,” “ rugged,” “ reliable,” and “ high performance” were affirmative statements concerning the quality and performance of the lap-top, which Apple did not meet. How should the court rule? Why?
