    hello I just recieved my iMac 24" 2.8ghz, 2gb of ram, 8800gs

    I was wondering a few things.
    First off is my screen damaged? Right besides the eyesight camera there is like a few dots.
    second the imac seems really hot
    Does this sound ok?
    I downloaded istat and got this

    cpu a 41 degrees
    cpu a 40
    gpu 51
    gpu diode 58
    gpu heat sink 50
    ambient 27
    memory controller 47
    airport card 43


    fans
    cpu fan1201 rpm
    hard drive 1200
    optical drive 699


    one more question I recieved the canon printer , it doesnt have a usb but it does support blue tooth, when I try to find the printer through the imac it doesnt find anything.

    thanks besides that im loving the big switch

    Congratulations on making the switch!

    First, your temps seem good, so there is no problem there. (The top left side can become extremely hot on mine) Second, are the dots on the actual screen, or are they in the black border? If you post a picture, i'll be sure to take a look.

    Hope this helps,

    Tim

    I believe that's the internal mic.

    The internal microphone is on top of the casing right above where the isight is located.

    Can you take a picture of it? It's weird to think you could even see any dots located on the black border.

    Not that I don't believe you, I just can't picture it in my head...

    don't worry about the picture man.

    i bet the dot comes on whenever you're using your camera right?

    its a green dot?

    that just signals that your camera is on man, no worries.

    If its possible could you post a hi resolution picture of your top imac around the isight?

    One more question, how do I know if my screen has the bleeding problem

    Most printers will support bluetooth printing but you will still need to get a BT module for them.

    Everything else has been answered correctly AFAIK.

    The only thing I can say is check HP's site, or search the web for a universal BT module for prints/etc if one exists.

    Just fire up photobooth, and that dot will turn green to signal the camera is on.
    Nothing to worry about. :)

    Congrats on your purchase.
    I envy you. :p
