Have been monitoring these forums since it was announced and finally took the plunge and picked up a new 27" imac i5 from the 14th street store in Manhattan. I have to say, this machine is awesome. The screen is perfect, the design blows me away and it is faster than I could have hoped for. I'm in love!! Maybe I'm lucky but I have no stuck pixels, no yellow tinge, no flashing screen and no noisy hard drive (I have the 1tb seagate). I've been an apple guy for about 5 years and this machine really has hit the sweet spot.
