    So my iMac is really annoying and keeps on vibrating my desk.

    I had 2 of the same iMacs, (had to get it replaced) and also this has happened on 2 different types of desks.

    My first desk was made of wood, I think, and I felt the vibration, but tried to ignore it. I recently purchased one of the Galant desks from Ikea (with the T-leg) and it's still there!
    The vibration isn't big enough to actually knock something over, but it's slight, and it's there. Seriously VERY annoying.

    Anyone else experiencing this? If so, have you found any kind of solution?

    Not in the least. I got myself a solid, oldschool herman miller office type desk and feel nothing.

    Cork Pad, should be able to cut a cork floor tile or pad to match the shape of the foot.

    This should absorb a bit of the vibration.

    Alternatively the cheap $1-10 neoprene mouse pads should also work.

    And if you cannot find cork pads, a set of $2 1/4" or 1/2" cork feet should also work.

    I don't think it is normal behaviour (for any device, let alone a mac). I'd be having words with wherever you bought it from.
