    I love it, it works great except for these problems:
    • Backlight has stripes and is uneven (see picture)
    • Discs are scratched (including my Leopard disc :eek:) and get stuck in the drive
    • The graphics card starts doing weird things every few days

    I have a genius bar appointment for tomorrow morning. The thing is I bought the iMac online refurbished three months ago.. So my question is what should I expect? Are they going to fix it or I have ignored these problems too long?

    Thanks,
    FM :apple:

    Yeah, that doesn't look good, and the performance issues you described with the graphics card. Unfortunately, you should probably expect them to repair it. It is way outside the 14 day window for an exchange for new.
