    ordered 24" 2.4 aluminum with 500gig from apple store online
    shipped from shanghai and recieved.
    gradient issue (bright on left side, ugly yellow/brown tint in middle)
    called apple
    took it to apple store for "verification" of problem
    the guy had me call apple from the store to request the replacement
    took it back home
    on the way back home got in a bad car accident
    got my car towed
    got a ride from my wife
    waited for fedex mailer to ship back for replacement
    took it to fedex/kinkos store to ship
    received replacement
    same gradient problem
    called apple requesting to cancel my order for full return
    received mailer
    took it to fedex to ship
    car is in shop getting a tear down

    anyway.. i'm thinking it's some sort of bad curse or something. my ti 1ghz powerbook g4 (april 2003) is dying .

    should i get the amazon deal for the 20" white imac, order a 20" aluminum and pray, or get a mac pro and take the money out of my childs college savings?

    Get the white 20". Minimize your investment and wait for better hardware.
    The current Mac Pro is near the end of its life cycle -- bad time to buy.

    For the price of a Pro system, you could buy the white 20" today plus
    the next generation iMac when it arrives.

    ...or maybe a midi-tower?

    There clearly is a connection here. I prescribe a full-blown Apple lawsuit over this.

    Well, at least you're still alive right? :)

    how about buying an iMac from a store, just ask them to open it up in the store so you can inspect it and make sure that it doesn't have the same problem? Not sure if it will work for you, but they did it for me when i brought back my MBP because of it whining and keyboard issues, i was probably being a bit picky but apple emlpoyees know we are a hard bunch to please. :cool:
