....has anyone else had this happen to you? My stupid carelessness...
Yikes...how bad is it? You have any pictures??
But nope, never happened to me.
That sucks. Did you have it on a monitor riser or something? How in the hell did you do that? I hope it's okay... another bad part of an "all in one" jobby.
Of course, I'm on an iMac as well.
jeeez, how did you do that? my iMac is like "bolted" to the desk because of it's weight
Seriously, if I managed to drop my iMac face down on the floor I would bang my head against a door knob with violence for 2/3 hours .
Even so, is it still working? lol, post some pics! yummi!
I think we need more details... Damage, pics, etc. My 24" is on the way. I guess I will bolt it to the desk first thing.
Wow scary! How did it happen? Did you knock it over or bump the desk?
New imac 15" G4 Superdrive.......
lol id laugh
Oh God, that is awful.
Is the desk okay?
LOL i'm sure he is worried about the desk.....
I would just like to add my own:
I hope everything is ok with your imac. I love my baby myself.
If it ever got hurt by a fall I would just cry.
New mommy syndrome. hehe
Yes, you can't post something provocative like this and not include any pictures. The people of MacRumors demand it.
If my 24" fell over, I'd be worried about the desk and any people trapped underneath it.
and to think there were rumors of a 40"plasma DVI display!
Well.. the iMac is fine I guess. A few minor scratches.... honestly I don't know how that happened. XD Need to get a new table perhaps?
Surely it must have been standing on something? It's hard to get my iMac to want to fall over even if I try. Did you knock it with something?
Buy the desk first then i Mac !!
I once did that to my brand new TV years ago. I didn't have a desk so i put it on something temporary. Unfortunately that was not stable enough. The temporary desk flipped, and my brand new tube TV fell face first. It broke before i even turned it on.
The lesson to learn ? if you don't have a desk for you computer, buy a desk first !!!! then buy iMac
ps) if it happens to my new iMac, i think i am going to kill myself.
Considering how huge that seems, I'd agree. If it was on the second floor, would it break the floor and ceiling below it?
I can't imagine how one would lose its balance and fall over.
lol i dropped my iBook G4 the other day aswell down some concrete stairs outside . it was ok 1 scratch but apart from that it was ok. I Just realised yesterday how hard they are
Ever drop an air conditioner out the window on the 2nd floor? It's not pleasant as it is, but when the car is parked below it...
Just a question, is your white flap below your imac's metal base loose? Does it 'shake', or pop in and out easily? I had a difficult time pulling the plastic off of the bottom when I first got the imac, and I think I may have torn the white flap from its glue on the inside of the metal base. Or is this normal?
I agree....WHERE ARE THE PICTURES?!? We must each assess the severity of the damage.
Yep! This happened to me too! Not the air conditioner part! Ripping off the white flap! I was in such a rush to turn on the 24 incher that I lost my mind and started tearing all the casings with anger . Ever since I put it on the desk I never looked at the white flap again, but I'm pretty sure it's loose...
Anyway, I rotate my iMac 45 degrees everyday so I can watch DVD's in bed and I've never even came close to dropping it you should really ease on those sleeping pills
Yes. And then decide whether to mock or commisserate with the OP.
OUCH! Reminds me of a commercial...
An air conditioner falls out of someone's apartment, and hits a car. The car starts sounding its horns, and the air conditioner's owner came to the window, pushed a button on a key fob, and the car stopped.
Apparently it was his car.
You definitely won't have to bolt it down. Those things are bloody heavy.
I've never heard of any iMac falling over, that base is wide and long, there should be no way it would fall over on its own.
