    So I walked out of the Apple Store with a brand new 27" i5 iMac about 2 1/2 weeks ago. It worked wonderfully, no yellow screen, just some minor back-light bleed.

    I don't know if I'm starting to see things from being paranoid reading these threads, or if it's really happening, but I'm starting to see a minor yellowish tint on the bottom right-hand corner of the screen.

    Has everyone had the same problem of the yellow tint coming into play over time? or was it right out of the box??

    I think that I have read that this is possible, however I do not own one so can't comment directly.

    However, I wouldn't be too worried either way, as it is a known fault and apple is fixing them all AND giving good will gestures to owners of affected machines

    well, I hope so... I don't want to go through the hassle, but I don't want that yellow screen either... maybe I can get them to upgrade me to the i7. HA

    Some people were reporting yellow tinge increasing with time, but then again, it was also just a subjective perception, not a reliable test.

    I think people are driving themselves so crazy they imagine it spreading. I've had a lot of screens with various tinges/casts, and they've NEVER changed from day one. That includes my i7 iMac.
