    My one year old 27" iMac is in the shop for repairs. The screen and the stand hinge, aka the "mechanism" as Apple indicated, are being replaced. The hinge repair requires the removal and reassembly of nearly every components. What do you think about the impact of such extensive "surgery" on the machine's long term reliability?

    As long as the technicians put back and tighten everything properly, and the new parts aren't defective, it shouldn't have any negative impact on long-term reliability.

    for the thin iMac, that essentially means they're gutting most components of your current iMac and installing them in a new housing + screen, should have no issue for you as the new iMacs are fairly clean set-ups internally and not a lot of room for error, everything has a specific spot to be.

    you should be fine, just make sure they install the display evenly on the housing.
