Long story short. I purchased my iMac 20" G5 two and half years ago and had no problems with it until the last 45 days. In January I had a problem with a stuck row of pixels and purple hueing. I could make it go away with a reboot. So it was something graphics related (at least what I thought). Trip to apple store 1 - Jan 28: They replaced the LCD screen ( on replacement cracked the bezel, I complained then) Trip to apple store 2 - Feb 3: Still had issue, replaced cable ribbon from display to LCD and fixed said cracked bezel. Trip to apple store 3 - Feb 8: Still was having issue, replaced logic board. Finally when I thought it was all fixed and I had time to start doing some graphics work....I have a row of stuck pixels. So I called in and now they are replacing it with 21.5" display. So after $1100 worth of repairs (according to their receipts) and then the replacement of a $1200 computer, I guess I am glad I got AppleCare. I just wanted to share my experience and that warm and fuzzy factor of owning applecare. I guess I am happy they stood by the product, sure a big inconvenience with a lot of time. Now lets hope the 21.5" makes it.
