Superior Court of the State of California for the County of Santa Clara

SKOLD, ET AL. V. INTEL CORPORATION, ET AL., Case No. 1-05-CV-039231

If you purchased a new computer with a certain
Pentium 4 processor for personal, family or
household use between November 20, 2000,
and June 30, 2002, a class action lawsuit may
affect your rights.

Purchasers of computers containing a certain Pentium 4 processor are suing Intel Corporation and Hewlett-Packard Company, alleging that Intel manipulated the performance benchmark scores for its first-generation Pentium 4 processors (codenamed Willamette) and that HP aided and abetted Intel's allegedly unlawful conduct. The lawsuit is known as Skold, et al. v. Intel Corporation, et al., Case No. 1-05-CV-039231, and is being overseen by the Honorable Peter H. Kirwan of the Superior Court.

The Court has also allowed the lawsuit to proceed as a class action against HP only on behalf of a subclass of the above class who were residents of California at the time they purchased their computers from HP, referred to as the "HP Subclass." The Court has not decided whether Intel or HP did anything wrong. In addition, the Court has stayed the case as to HP pending resolution of the claims against Intel. There is no money available now, and no guarantee there will be in the future. However, your legal rights may be affected and you have a choice to make now:

Option 1:

Do Nothing

Stay in this class action. You will preserve your chance to recover money or other benefits in this class action in exchange for giving up your rights to bring your own lawsuit against Intel or HP about the issues in the litigation. See Sections 13 and 14 of the Notice for details.

Option 2:

Ask to be Excluded

Get out of this class action. You will give up your chance to recover money or other benefits in this class action in exchange for preserving any right you may have to bring your own lawsuit against Intel or HP about the issues in the litigation. See Sections 15 and 16 of the Notice for details.

The deadline for excluding yourself is April 30, 2014.
