    I've had a 24" iMac (alu) for about a year. Now I bought a Mac Pro (Love it!). Therefore i wanted to sell the iMac, but:

    All the time I've had it, dust has been building up inside the screen. I thought it was inside the glass cover, but I carefully removed that and cleaned it and the surface of the LCD element. That didn't do it...

    From what I can see, the dust is inside the LCD element. Building up on the white lit surface behind the LCD crystals. (See the attached image).

    Have anybody seen something similar?

    Is there any solution?

    Thanx in advance

    That doesn't look like dust to me nor do I believe dust can get inside the liquid crystals. :p

    I had a similar, but MUCH lesser problem on my first 24" aluminum iMac. It looked just like what your picture shows but it was just one long line towards the center of the screen.

    I sent it in to Apple and they promptly replaced the LCD panel. I'd send that back to Apple if I were you (and if it is still under coverage).
