I am the not so proud owner of an early 2009 24" iMac with a Logic Board that has failed, and am now facing a HUGE bill should I decide to have it replaced. Considering how much I paid for the machine, which was the top of the range at the time, I am bitterly disappointed that my Apple turned out to be a rotten one. Is reliability and longevity too much to ask for? Also is a cost effective fix for what is clearly a serious design fault, as evidence on this forum and Apple forums suggest I am not alone, again too much to ask for. Dam it, I have a aged 486 dating back to 1995 that is still going strong as an ox. My iMAC went as strong as a Mayfly, a brief existence. Shame on Apple.
