    My Intel iMac 20" is about 6 months old.

    In the last couple of months more and more dust has been settling behind the screen. It's only in the top left corner and the bottom left corner that I see it.

    Is there anything I can do about it?

    It's really annoying to look at.

    I read somewhere that the iMac should be hermetically sealed, so I should be able to get Apple to fix it under the warranty, or?

    I've never heard anything about the iMac being sealed in that manner. Maybe it is and I just don't know.

    Try some canned air to see if it gets some of the dust out, that is if you can find a place where you can get the air into the iMac. And if not, I suppose you could try going to Apple with it.

    Dust behind the screen

    Hmmm. I have exactly the same problem in exactly the same places on my 20" iMac.

    Did you ever take yours back?
