27" iMac, i3, 8 Gig Ram, 10.6.6: My 14 month old iMac just fried itself to death: power supply, video board?, Logic Board, as per Apple! Their estimate to fix is $1700!.. & the tech had the nerve to ask me if I wanted to repair it!! Any way: This was the first i3 model in late 2009, the one with the video problem's as well, (which I never experienced).****Have you heard of other instances of this model going dead, with no apparent warning after 14 or so months?**** It is run 12 hours a day for 4 day a week in my office doing Fusion/Vista and Snow leopard at the same time. It has functioned flawlessly until last month. Fusion suddenly would take forever to close. Then the apple menus would disappear. "Pull the AC wire to Force crash" would be the only way to shut down. I'd restart the friendly way, rebuild several java related virtual permissions, all would be well for a few days, then a repeat of the above when I'd close fusion at the days end. I reinstalled Snow 2x, and the disappearing menu act took a week instead of days to appear, when fusion was closed. Last thurs, The Login Screen:Name /password screen switched to the finder for a second, then returned back to the login screen. This repeated itself 3 x, then, the screen went black and the iMac died. Nothing Would Boot It! Apple couldn't start it at the store. They later diagnosed a dead logic board after they placed a new power supply, & video board in it while evaluating it. In my 18 years of macs, from (all still working) the Quadra 650, upgraded beige G3's, PCI G4's, 2004 iBooks, G5 iMacs, my 1999 iMacDV400 that used to run my office apps, and countless others, I have never experienced a Mac that stopped working, let alone just DROPPED DEAD! ****WHAT COULD POSSIBLY CAUSE THIS MASSIVE DEATH?****A Defective early design fault?**** I figure you guys will have a knowledge base if this model was a lemon, and Apple doesn't wish to say so. **Do I have any recourse? **Can the LCD be adapted in any way, for external use by another Mac, or am I the proud owner of an $1800 HDD, the only salvageable part? **Wanna buy 8Gig of brand new OWC RAM?** **Did God take it so I can be the first one on the block to buy, (beta test), the new model 27" Rotten Apple, that was just announced?** Thanks.
