I purchase and iMac 24" 2.8 Ghz computer (with no upgrades or changes). It is still under the 14 day return policy. My screen looks brighter on the left side, burnt/warm tone in the middle and darker on the right. I didn't even register the computer, I just turn it off. I look at the screen from all different angles and light situations and still can see the problem. I had some other people look at it without even telling them what to look for and they told me exactly what I saw. So, I called the closest Apple store to me (3 hours away) and they told me that they would return it until I told them the part number. They said that all 24" 2.8 computers are custom configurations. I order base model with no upgrades, is that a stock computer? Don't they sell 24" 2.8 Ghz computers at the Apple store? After researching this issue (on here, google, and on Apple's website), I can't believe how many people have had this problem. I feel that Apple should update and fix this problem! I understand that not all computers come perfect but this is nothing new. So, what I am asking is, were people able to return their gradient problem computers? I don't want a replacement.
