Even though only one man filed the lawsuit, it can become a class action suit if others decide to join him in his claim, which might not be an issue: An Apple.com support thread for this particular problem, entitled “MacBook Pro Retina display burn-in,” currently has more than 7,200 replies and 367,000 views across more than 500 pages."
