    Thsi might sound a little crazy but I just upgraded from my Imac 24 dual core to an Imac 27 I5. I did the upgrade about a week ago and ever since then my eyes are freaking killing me.

    I know the screen is 3 inches larger but wow, can that make that much of a differnece on my eyes. I tried darkening the screen a little but I wonder if I should return this 27 for an I5 or I7 24 Imac?

    Any thoughts? Or aby of you experiencing the same issues?

    I have my brightness set to ~40%, otherwise I get headache. It's not the extra size, it's likely the brightness. Lower it more, your eyes will get to use to it.

    BTW, there is no i5 nor i7 24" iMac
