    Hi guys,

    I'm going to order a new iMac in the next few days and i'll be doing it online via the apple store for the first time. I know apple has a 5 or more dead pixel's policy before they replace it and i called my local reseller and they advised they can't let me look over the display then decide if i want to purchase cos my order is going to be a custom one.

    So has anyone recently got a new iMac and found dead pixels or is it rare these days?

    You can still return it or ask for replacement within 14 days after purchase. After that it's a warranty case and then it's 5 pixels policy I think. All LCDs have them, it's a game of luck

    It's certainly not something I'd be freaking out over. there's just as likely a chance the firewire doesn't work or the disk drive is broken. It's just up to chance, but the chances are stacked heavily in your favour. There shouldn't be a problem.
