    I got this iMac back in 12/2011, and it's not as reliable as my previous Mac. This computer crashes on a regular basis (average once a week), and it's driving me insane. It came with Lion, and I have done fresh install a couple of times, and it doesn't seem to help. I also experience kernal panic every now and then, but it seems to go away after I took out the ram modules, and put it back in (I have 16GB of ram). I ran some 3rd party ram test, and it passed.

    Now that ML came out, I did a clean install again yesterday and it's now crashed at least 3 times already. One time during the installation process (it said computer is restarting but it stuck at the 0 second screen). Another time www when I was transferring the data files back to the newly installed OS X. One time when I put the screen to sleep, and another when I ran disk permission. I seriously don't think that's normal. I called AppleCare before, and they could tell me what's wrong. This is the latest crash report. Do you guys have any idea what's wrong with this computer? I really like the iMac, and it's been problematic every since I bought it. Thanks for your help.

    P.S. the computer tends to crash more often when I try to restart it or shutdown, or waking up from sleep. Although it happens in other normal situation as well. I have my Drobo connected via FW and WD Password HD that uses as TM (connected behind the Drobo's FW), and my TrippLite UPS via USB. I have nothing else connected behind the iMac.

    Something tells me it could be with the UPS. have you tried with just a regular surge protector or straight to an outlet?

    And by clean install are you actually booting into the recovery partition and erasing the Macintosh HD partition and then downloading and installing OS X?

    I'm thinking it might me the UPS too, and I remembered the iMac crashed the first week I bought it, and I had to reinstall everything because it failed to wake from sleep. I didn't have the UPS then, and also the Drobo. The only thing I added at the time was the additional Ram. How accurate is the ram test? It's just so strange that it crashes so often.

    Just called AppleCare, and the lady told me to run the Apple Diagnostic test, did an extended test, and it came back fine. I'll definitely remove the USB cable from the UPS and see what happens.

    Zmacintosh, I made a bootable jump drive from the ML installer, and booted to that. Then I ran Disk Utility to remove the Lion partipition, erase and formulated the drive. If it's an OS issue with all these crashes, then I should be fixed with a clean install? I just don't know anymore.
