    Just noticed that Apple has pushed out the iMac Software Update version 1.3 on Software Update.

    Has anyone been brave enough to try this? BTW... Running Leopard here, not sure if this is an update available in Tiger.

    And of course the same vague description on Apple's site:

    "This update provides important issue fixes and is recommended for the aluminum 20-inch and 24-inch iMac models with 2.0, 2.4, or 2.8 GHz processors." :eek:

    That would be very cool for the many who have suffered. I have been on of the lucky ones and had no problems in Tiger with 1.1 or 1.2. My experience in Leopard so far as been just as stable (knock on wood). If I could only get time machine to see my NAS share for backups. So far no go. :mad:

    I will say I am enjoying having 2 mac partitions and a dedicated bootcamp windows partition (now nicely hidden to OS X). This install feels good to me. :D

    Nice. Been waiting for this... lets see.


    Update: Heh, looks like a rush job. Just made my iMac freeze using good ol' Front Row.

    Awesome! I just got a friend to switch, and was worried he'd be whining to me about freezes :)

    Now to wait for 10.5.1 (hopefully it'll be here by the 15th when his iMac is scheduled to arrive...

    I guess the title is a typo. Version 1.2 you mean, right?

    I can make mine freeze so easily using front row. I just navigate to music with the Album art scrolling along, and move the selector from music to playlists to artists etc.

    Freezes everytime.

    What other programs did you use that made your iMac lock up? Maybe I can give 'em a try.

    Wow, I just froze in Time Machine.

    This piece of crap is getting returned this weekend.

    Maybe I should by one of those Windoze machines that crash every 2 days instead of every 2 minutes...

    I also have had no freezing, or any of the other problems related to Tiger, and or Leopard. Very happy Apple camper here.

    Just the thought of me boxing up my 24" iMac that weighs a ton and carrying it through the mall is pissing me off. Then have one of their "geniuses" try and figure it out over and over like I don't know what hell I'm talking about pisses me off even more. And then the thought of not having my mac for a few days is the cherry on top. Maybe I shoulda got a ACD and a MacBook pro instead.

    Oh and the risk of your "repaired" iMac coming back with more problems than it originally had as well. Gotta love it man...I feel your pain.
