    i have a week 5 model i7 iMac ... while the screen is not perfect it is a lot better then week 45 and week 2 that i had.

    now that the whole screen issue is behind us, has anyone been able to contact apple and using applecare have a new (NO ISSUE) screen put in their iMac ?

    They offered me that just a few days ago, but I went with the replacement.
    Figured changes were about the same.

    But, I'd really like to hear if people have gotten a good, problem-free screen repair.

    I phoned applecare and they said if I take it into my local store I could get the screen replaced for free...they said it could take up to a week and I have no other computer so going to wait for now, should still be able to get it done anytime within the years applecare though

    Sadly, it's not. :mad:


    Still plenty of reports of yellow screens in Week 14.

    whattttt

    i haven't been up to the loop much but i thought the whole screen issue was fixed ....

    this is disappointing none the less

    i have been holding out for a bit now in hopes of the screens would have been fixed but i guess not

    I wish it weren't true, but several posters have commented on yellow screens from their refurbs and new iMacs from week 14.

    I think Industrial Vacancy and Btom are the same person.

    talking the same **** no doubt.:confused:

    I'm just waiting for a decent statistic, like x amount of numbers sold vs x amount of numbers returned/replaced for screen issues.

    not going to happen.

    IE the vast majority have a good machine.

    meh?!?!?!
