    You don't have many options. In a nutshell:

    1. Call Apple and get a replacement (take the risk of tint)
    2. Call Apple and get a refund and buy a different Mac with that money (it's a compromise since there is no similar Mac)
    3. Call Apple and get a refund and buy a PC (you get the hardware you wanted but you're stuck with Windows)
    4. Ignore the tint and keep your current

    I went thru 2 BTO, and 3 in store purchases before the 5th iMac had an acceptable display. IMO, the 3 that I got from the Apple Store were all better than the first two BTOs.
