Has quality control improved on late model 2013 iMac's? The forum reports frequent yellow screen and smudged and dust in screen issues?

I am curious if these are frequent or isolated issues?

There's a large selection bias reading these forums - only people who have problems will post about them. The majority of people with perfectly fine machine will never post anything for you to read.

Likely, if there was a significant defect rate, the mainstream media would have picked up on it.

Are some defective? Sure, Apple sells millions... at least one has to go bad. But it's far more likely if you bought one you'd get one that meets all quality specifications.

ditto!
Since making the switch to Apple about 10 years ago, we've had zero QC issues etc. with our numerous Apple products.
We are now on our second 'current generation' iMac, our second being only 3 weeks old, again, zero QC issues.

I have a '2013' iMac on order myself (27" 3.5GHz i7), so I'll report back the good or the bad. Should arrive late next week.
