    i have a late 2009 model iMac that I don't use all that often Any longer. I booted it up today after not using it for around a month and I encoutered (see picture). It appears to be moisture trapped between the glass of the monitor and the display. Is this even possible? Will the heat from running the computer get rid of it or is there a safer method? I really hope this isn't anything really terrible...

    I had something pretty similar show up on my 2007 24" iMac screen during some extremely muggy weather. Freaked a bit but it disappeared after a day or so. Can't be 100 percent sure it's the same thing but I'd give it a day or two and see if it goes away.

    Same here on my few years old 27" Cinema display. It's seems related to the humidity, and it will disappear after the monitor is on for a while.

    Try booting it up and leaving it on for a few hours.

    What happens?

    I figured it was due to humidity, so I left it on for several hours and it cleared right up. Thanks everyone!
