2 potential issues which I've noticed. First off, I did the gradient test and noticed that the right side of the display is slightly different in color than the left side. What's the verdict on the gradient issue? Is it just inherent to this type of display or is Apple replacing iMacs because of it. Can't find a definitive answer. Secondly, I noticed a staticky (sp) sound coming from the speakers when I listen to music or watch a video. It happens intermittently, lasts for about 3 seconds, and sounds like a low pitch "whooshing" sound. It *seems* to be tied to when the hard drive is being accessed or something like that. Anyone experience this? Thank you so much for your help. I'm excited about my iMac but naturally want it to live up to it's full potential! .
