Just a quick note for those iMac G5 users out there that mine died after 6 months. Looks like I'll be having to invest in that applecare before my year is up. I had a feeling something was going to happen about a month after I bought it and I would notice an occasional screen flicker after it had been sitting for awhile. It seemed like it was having little power fluctuations but I tested it in two locations with same effect. I tried hardware test and kept my eye on the console but nothing ever came up. And then this last week I was out of town but was connecting to the machine via VNC and returned to find out the screen was occasionally locking up blurred and leaving some phantom pixels. And then console started showing kernel graphics chip errors. And then it never recovered from the hardware test of the VRAM. The only thing I had done differently with the computer lately was that I had changed the resolution to match that of my 12" ibook while I was away to make using VNC easier. Would reduced resolution put an extra toll on the VRAM? I think I might have also reduced the number of colors to see if Chicken of the VNC would work faster. Is this practice I should not use when I am away from my office? It is just such a hastle to try to scroll around the screen space on my 20" when I'm on my 12". Any ideas? Right now Apple is thankfully next-daying me a new midplane. However, they did tell me if I don't get them the old one back within 10 days of receiving the new one that they would charge me $1200. Otherwise I love my 20".
