Hello Macrumour, I can see that the UPS van with the new iMac is finally drawing nigh after a dussin or so days, but I also can’t help but notice how this thing has been bouncing from country to country, city to city (eight so far) and still has a long way to go. Makes me wonder if this thing will even resemble a an all-in-one machine by the time it gets here. Even if i usually have a better experience with UPS than this guy had with FedEx. Ordering a lot of stuff from afar, I have gotten my fair share of not-quite pristine electronics, though I usually accept them since I’m by nature not inclined to make a fuss about this sort of thing. But this being Apple, the most moneyed, unscrupulous multi-national around, I intend to let them have it if something isn’t in working order. I feel I plucked down handsomely for this thing, they should repair it even if there is some minor defect like too many dead pixels. This being my first proper mac I have no idea how to check it, or even what I should look for. What I want is a short and basic guide to probe the product of any major flaw that I could do easily and without installing a lot of software or anything fancy like that. Just making sure it is in working order when it arrives. Hearing people talking online, I’ve heard them mention everything from dead pixels, image/screen retention, yellow tint of the screen, slow harddrive speed, bad sound, graphic performance issues, high temperatures. And off course scratches and bumps (leaving nothing out here). I've searched the forum along these lines but to no avail. If someone could write a few lines or paragraphs just outlining what usually is wrong with these machines and how you would notice, then that would really be helpful. How fast is the fusion drive supposed to be, for example? Thanks.
