    Ummmm...is someone else's email address supposed to show up on a brand new iMac when the enter your Apple ID screen comes up?????

    It says annejohnson1@me.com

    I'm hoping that's just an example.

    Okay so it WAS an example. It was greyed out and when I clicked on it and entered my E-Mail address it turned to black.

    OMG. I was scared there for a second!!!!

    Umm, my take on that thread was that it wasn't an example and that Apple was replacing the iMac...

    Yeah, but the e-mail address that was in mine matched MacRumorUser's question in that thread: "Are you sure it wasn't an example iD like steve@mac.com in greyed out font?"

    Mine was annejohnson1@me.com in a greyed out font. Apple support also confirmed with me that that was an example only.

    Example... I bought an iMac 2011 in july and a new macbook air the day they came out both units had the annejohnson1@me.com. So unless this individual has the ability to purchase and return computers and apple gets them into circulation within a few days of return... I feel confident that it is an example.
