Forgive me if this has been answered elsewhere but I am not patient enough to dig through 18 pages of opinions for what could be given in a couple of simple answers. I have a potential long-term job bid that will require a current Mac and Adobe suite to replace my trusted G5. I am going to bring something home THIS WEEKEND. Ideally, it will be the 27" iMac i5. My question pertains to how to read the manufacturing date or any other information to help determine when a machine was made, what batch it comes from, and if it is likely to show the documented screen flaws from the earlier batches. Simple answers, please. There are enough opinions on other threads.
