    I had my iMac since Christmas. And I must say, I love it! I wish I switched to the Mac world sooner! I don't see any yellow tinge or gray bands. It's very quiet and the screen can be as dark or bright without any noise. :] Once I turned on my first iMac, I knew how to work it very quickly [because I've been working with Mac's for most my life] but this is my first Mac I ever owned.
    :] Just thought I should say that I got a perfect iMac. So don't worry about the problems when you first get it. You might not even see them!

    Congrats. I, too, was surprised by how nice Macs were and wished I had picked up one earlier. I got my first in 2009.

    I got my first mac "iMac" a couple of months ago and I love it. Sure there is a little learning curve after using a PC for 16 yrs, but between this forum, apple support and google, most things are ironed out.

    I went with the 21.5 monitor and love it, even though my PC monitor was a 24, I really don't mind the difference.

    It's amazing until you are away from a PC, how quiet it is and does not have the strange "running" in the background. I kept my PC "clean", never had a virus and did regular maintenance but by the time I decided to change to Mac, I was amazed the amount of time it would take to boot up.

    Love my decision. I read about the iMac on this forum before I made my purchase.

    May I just ask:

    Does anyone have an issue with the blacks?

    By this i mean on a black/ very dark screen background are the colours even or do you find the bottom lower left and/ or right hand side slightly lighter than than the rest of the screen, kind of a light leak from the screen?

    I dont have any problem with blacks on my 21.5. I have the desktop black and with that matched up against the color of the monitor border, I cannot see any difference anywhere. I don't have all of my desktop in black, centered is an image of one of my favorite hounds.
