    Seems people are still whinging about the new iMacs, I have seen many appreciation threads, my i7 is 2 months old I've had no problems and I have pushed it, I've mixed and mastered some tracks of my covers band http://www.f3music.com/681

    The only thing that was unacceptable was the visually crippling mirror like screen which I fixed with one of these http://www.radtech.us/Products/ClearCal-Displays.aspx

    Anyone else have a problem free new iMac?

    I don't have any problems with mine, and I've had it since Christmas.

    Only thing that's sorta annoying is the loud HDD, but I'm hopefully getting that fixed on Thursday. But that's not a 'problem', just a crappy Seagate HDD. And they're always loud for no reason.

    But other than that, I haven't had a single problem with mine.

    Mine is almost perfect... (Well, in terms of computer it is).
    The only thing that annoys me is the, yet acceptable, light yellowing at the bottom and right of the screen. But, as I will be able to repair it (if I ever repair it since it is hardly noticeable) when 27" iMac panels will have no such problem, I do not consider it a serious problem..

    Otherwise - simply amazing and perfect. No loud HD noise (cannot say the same of the external drive 2TB Lacie...) And the i7 simply flows. Really.. Nothing compared with my previous 2.0GHz Dual Core Toshiba lol (yes, this iMac is my first (hopefully of many more =D) Mac!

    Simply delighted with Snow Leopard (specially compared with Vista ..(and I suppose even 7) from which I came).

    And being able to install Windows through Boot Camp (which I'll do) is simply great. That way you occupy like 100/200 GB with wind7 and you are able to play some hardcore games and run windows-only software.. If it wasn't for the connectivity issues of MBP (lack of HDMI, eSata, for example) I would say I would definitely never again buy a PC. Like things are right now I say probably I won't lol - But a 1000$ Toshiba with i7, 4GB, eSata, HDMI and blu-ray is REALLY hard to resist when compared to the actual MBP's..
    But hopefully by the time I will buy my next portable computer (1/2 years) MPS's will be more competitive - Lack of HDMI and blu-ray are the most important for me.

    Well sorry the off topic, but i was in the mood to write something down

    Well it is when you don't chop up my sentences, I'm no apple fan boy, I hate the glossy screens they make but I found a cheap solution and now it *is* perfect IMO and I'm happy

    Even though you have seen some appreciation threads, you won't hear the people with the working computers nearly as much as those with the issues.

    No-issues= working and productivity
    Issues= on MacRumors and other forums complaining and troubleshooting while computer gets serviced.

    I've had mine for a week now, it's been fantasic - still adjusting to os x coming from an all windows world, but I'm very happy with this purchase.

    Mine died after 3-weeks of use. It has been returned to be fixed or replaced, but as of 15-days since it was returned, Apple has no ETA for when I will get it replaced. What a joke. :mad:

    As close to perfect as it can get. Not really much else to say other than it's working as advertised.
    I've had it for little over a month... well come to think of it, it didn't come with the arm pre-attached or the ambient lights that don't do much other than look pretty, guess it wasn't perfect after all ;)
