Hi,

I've been using the 27" imac for a month now and its a nice machine. Honestly it does everything I used to do on my previous mac just on a bigger screen (simplistic view).

Ok, but there is something that I think needs to be addressed...

It's the menu bar (aligned top left). In such a big screen the temptation is to move windows where you need them because there is the space to do this.

But the menu bar does not follow the windows as it is fixed to the screen.

So I often find I cannot place a window where I like it best (say far right) because the menu bar will remain on the top-left of the screen.

This quirk is a nuissance and actually limits the use I can make of this great screen-surface I have on the 27" imac

Agree 100%. My biggest annoyance of my 2 day old Mac.
