    Hi All,

    Just want to throw this out there. Got my 2011 iMac 27" SSD last night, and it crashed every 3 minutes. Quickly looked up online for a solution, and here is what I did. Do a PRAM reset and install the latest updates. You do a PRAM reset by

    1. turning off your imac
    2. turn on your imac
    3. press and hold command-option-P-R (all 4 keys) before the gray screen comes up.
    4. The computer will restart and give you a bong sound a second time.
    5. Install the latest software updates after restart.

    No problem ever since. Was worried I had to send this back.

    Still, you shouldn't have to do that on a brand new machine.

    Exactly.
    I'd be digging around to see how 'new' this machine is if it were mine....

    It's the 27" SSD iMac that was delayed forever. It was just shipped directly from China last week. I am not worried that it's a refurb. I did a extended AHT and there was no issue.
