Hi there, I just purchased the new imac late 2012 and started using it on January 5th,2013.. I was trying to backup my ipad today so I had it plugged into my iMac but while I was using my computer the imac was close to the edge of the desk and it fell off without me being able to catch it, which caused the usb cable to unplug until the ipad was dropped on the ground. This isn't really the problem.. but While this happened the usb cable was still attached to my imac so the imac was pulled forward and my computer was shut down accidentally. It wasn't until I looked behind the computer that I noticed the dropping of my ipad caused the power cable to unplug in that split second, which caused the imac to shut down accidentally. Now I'm not worried about the ipad at all cause it's the first generation and there was no problem with it, but my biggest concern is whether if any damage was caused to my iMac.. I just had it a few days ago and this was so unexpected I'm sort of freaking out right now.. I turned my imac back on after securing the power cable again and there didn't seem to be any notifications or signs that it was being shut down unexpectedly.. but I'm worried if that drop caused any damage on the computer hardware and software.. especially the processor, ram, and hard drive.. just generally the entire imac itself. I'm hoping to use this imac for over 5+ years so I guess I'm just very worried that this accident will cause the life of my imac to be shortened I ran disk utility and my macintosh drive appears to be okay... did this sort of thing ever happened to anyone, and if it did how did you mac turn out to be? Would any files or anything be lost during this incident? I was watching a video clip from my external drive- which was also plugged in when it happened, and was backing up my ipad but not sure if that was already done.. I hope I'm just freaking out and nothing really happened with my computer because I'm really worried... Is there anything I need to do with my imac to make sure it's ok? Do I need to contact apple support, or ask them about it? Or should I just forget this ever happened and move on with my life... any help would be appreciated!
