    I've been noticing (been really bugging me) that my 20" iMac is slightly crooked. Is this normal for the G5/Intel iMacs? Is there an easy fix for it?

    In what way is it crooked?

    Is the base uneven, or is the computer mounted crooked on the base?

    edit: Darn it mad jew, you beat me to it!

    Your desk might not be even. Mine isn't. Makes it look like the screen is crooked on my new PB.

    :|. It's quite frustrating. I'm at school so the desks are garbage. I just use my PB on my lap most of the time so I don't go nuts thinking my computer is messed up.

    It seems like the iMac is crooked at the top of the stand where the computer and the base are connected. I know the desk is likely crooked, but I am dangerously obsessive with this stuff. I shift my iMac 15-20 times a day. Everything in my room has its place ahd how it should look... and this really bothers me... went to bed thinking about it.

    furryrabbitt, i'm with you on that one. I have anxiety, and I see things very strangely. I look at my computers screens and I can see the top and bottom of all the windows look very wavy and uneven. I see some areas raised and some lowered, some windows titled right, and some titled left.

    Use (or buy) a level, and just get yourself a piece of mind. Set it on top of the iMac, and see what happens. If it isn't right, take it in to get fixed.

    I'm the same way. All I see when I look at my PB is how the windows are "all curved in different directions". Which I know is impossible seeing as this is only 3 or 4 days old.

    LOL, I have that too. When I look at the tops of windows (this is on multiple computers) I always see them as one end bends up along the top or they're not straight edges...it's really weird. If I ask someone they think I'm crazy.

    Yep that happen with me. My old eMac drove me nuts, so much I ditched it for the iMac last week. I swore at the highest resolution the windows were jumpy (parents couldn't confirm, but my friend did) the geometry was all screwed up too. I swore the bottom left corner was bent in.
