My new iMac 17" is highly unstable. Lots of random freezes and kernel panics. Tried hardware test/software restore (kernel panics), tried single-user mode (kernel panics), tried regular Mac OS X mode (freezes or kernel panics randomly). I'm going to bring it into my local Apple Store (Legacy Village) to get it looked at. My suspicion is that the RAM is bad, but I can't check that because hardware test kernel panics before the user interface loads (making it unusable).
