Good afternoon everyone. For those of you who have read my posts and threads that I've created, you know how much I've been in love with my new 27' i5. Unfortunately, I'm going to have to take it back today, whether I have to eat the restocking fee or not. The short version is that, despite that it had a few minor complaints that didn't bother me so much (slight yellow tint in the bottom left corner, slight backlight bleed in the bottom right corner), my eyes just cannot adjust to the screen at all. It's a combination of the overall brightness and the size of the small fonts on such a high resolution. I had tried using Shades and Black Light to help with the brightness issue, but there was still something about it that was causing me to have horrible headaches and eye strain. Also, due to me having medium myopia, attempting to read the system fonts was causing major issues, as well. Sure, I could have just lowered the resolution to 1900x1200, but... well, to be perfectly honest, it looked pretty terrible out of its native resolution, especially due to the lack of resolution independence, and I can't justify having such a huge screen if I can't even use it. I really do love OSX though, and that's part of the reason I'm so upset that I have to return the machine. That and I feel terrible returning a perfectly good product back to the store (and of course eating the restocking fee for the system plus the extra memory I purchased). Now I think I'm planning on purchasing a Mac Mini just to use the operating system for web surfing and e-mail, and using a PC just for gaming. And I guess I can take some solace knowing that whoever gets my iMac on refurb isn't going to get a horribly grotesque one. Anyhow, you've been a fantastic community, and I've enjoyed hammering these forums every single day, salivating for more news and rumors on the upcoming iMac refreshes. I'm not sure how much longer I'll be sticking around these forums, so if nothing else, I wanted to thank you all for being so pleasant to discuss things with!
