Did you listen AT ALL to anything Linus said? Jesus christ. That's not what happened. The iMac WAS repairable. Apple refused to do so because they can't get their act together on having certified techs to REPAIR a $5,000 'Pro' branded (what a joke) iMac SIX MONTHS after it was released. It DOES NOT MATTER how the iMac was damaged. You could literally have an act of god damage the iMac, it doesn't matter, if YOU are willing to pay for parts and labour to fix it, it's none of Apple's business what exactly happened except to say 'Yes, we have a repair services. Give us money and we'll repair whatever needs to be repaired.' If you opened up your phone, damaged it, I'd STILL expect Apple offer you a repair option. It's not like EVERY component of the phone would be broken, unless that's what you'd do... but THIS is what you're suggesting that happened, that they broke every component inside the iMac where it was pointless repairing it. You're lying, admit it, swallow your pride, stop cheerleading for Apple and move on. Why is this so hard for so many of you to comprehend?
