    Hi
    My new IMAC (RETINA 5K, 27-INCH, LATE 2015) display glas is broken, and i was told they have to change the hole display because they are one piece! And that is really expensive, is there anything to do?

    Is there anybody else having this problem?

    Thx. Ebz

    Assuming your iMac took a fall, unfortunately they're correct when they say the glass and display are one fused-together part. This has been true since the late 2012 iMac.

    You might be able to buy the glass+display assembly and make the repair yourself, but it still isn't cheap or easy to do.

    ...no it didn't take a fall, actually i dont know what happened, maybe I hit with something and it got a crack on the one side that unfortunately got bigger and bigger. :-(

    It can't hurt to try that, but I'm skeptical that it would work. Your only option is to replace the entire display panel given the fact its all glued together

    Nope, unlike the iPhone AppleCare for computers does not cover accidental damage.

    I have tryed to glue it but it didn't work. Now the crack has split the display in the middle, but the display still works so I think i have to live with it. I can hope the prizes for a display change will som day be cheaper.

    Buy of the ebay apple screen http://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/like/3516...rlsatarget=pla-181484341746&adtype=pla&crdt=0 and replace it yourself, will save money, I think its 478£ + vat if you buy off apple.
