    Hi all,

    Have a learned much lurking here since I purchased my new iMac (mid 2011 base model 27").
    Just curious if this is normal or possible a defect. camera works fine, just sits off center in the window.

    Thanks

    Brian

    Yes it's normal. They moved it off centre for the ambient light sensor

    The camera is angled downward a bit but it also looks like your screen isn't flush with the top of the computer. Checked mine and my wife's and you can't see any silver above the black like that.

    Also could be the angle of the picture and I'm just seeing the top of the monitor angled back.:)

    Thanks for the observation, I double checked and it was the photo angle, the black is flush with the top.

    Thanks
