    My iMac G5's display burned out exactly one year from purchase. I live in Japan and bought my iMac in Hawaii. I was informed that Desktops weren't covered overseas. I bought Apple Care and am planning on going back to Hawaii for 2 weeks. Now my questions are..

    1.) will they be able to fix the display within 2 weeks?

    2.) since it is a first generation iMac G5, do you think they might just give me a new iMac G5 if the display cannot be fixed?

    I know nobody will actually now the answers to these questions, but just wanted to hear what other people think.

    I cannot answer 1) but Apple tend to keep stock of parts to fix all machines that can still be covered under AppleCare. They will replace the screen. The chances of them giving you a new G5 are close to 0.
