    Just cracked the corner of the glass panel on my iMac, I've been looking around to buy a replacement and I only seem to find up to mid 2012. Anyone aware of any sellers that sell the front glass panel for iMac 27" Late 2012?

    Starting with the Late 2012 there is no glass panel. The panel and screen/display is one unit.

    The glass and LCD are basically soldered together. You'd have to replace the entire LCD (which is expensive). If the screen works fine, I'd just try to live with it.

    not worth to pay these money for screen only, for £700 you can buy used iMac 27" 2012-2013 in nice condition
