    I have a mid 2011 27" iMac.

    Basically I was using my system and suddenly a big spot near the center of the screen started making it hard to see, and now it makes everything within that area, very blurry.

    What can I do? Is there a way to fix this? Is it the humidity? I hadn't used this system for about 2 1/2 months. Should I employ my Applecare?

    Thanks!

    I have to say with all of these screen issues that I've been reading about on this forum, I'm starting to get hesitant about my middle-of-the-year plans of purchasing the iMac refresh. I'm not at all interested in paying $2,000 for a computer that's going to have a messed up screen in a relatively small amount of time considering its cost. Not to mention that I live in Phoenix, which is, to put it nicely, a complete dust magnet of a city. If therer isn't some sort of reassurance that the refresh addresses this, I may just buy a MacBook Pro and hook it up to a nice monitor.

    I've been waiting patiently for 2012 iMac refresh as well, while checking this forum on a near daily basis.

    At first I thought it was just a small percentage of users, probably smaller than the number of people claiming to have antennagate on their iPhone 4, but I must say I'm becoming more skeptical the more I see threads like this.

    This doesn't sound the same as the "smudge" issue or the "yellowing" issue.. I'm very curious what it is, but it doesn't look like a pattern (yet).

    Fixed!!, it was some condensed humidity due to the fact I hadn't used the system for a while. The screen's heat plus a dehumidifier I brought, helped melt it away...

    How would humidity get in?

    Hmmm, it's happening again :( it's been a week since I last used this iMac. It's some condensed humidity, now I just have to wait for it to melt. I really hope this won't happen each time I use my system...
