    Hello,

    I've just received my iMac 21.5 and unfortunately it has the following problems:

    - Yellow tint in the bottom right corners
    - Screen buzz from half brightness up to full brightness
    - Seagate harddrive rumble

    If i sent it back, how in godsname will i know if they won't just sent me another one with a seagate harddrive? As it seems, all seagate harddrives suffer from the buzz? Same goes for the others problems too.. Can i ask the people at Apple to send me one with another harddrive? Or is that impossible?

    Thanks from a dissapointed buyer..

    So it's the seagate drives that are causing the problem?
    Are we just supposed to accept them? :(

    Not all Seagate HDs are bad. I doubt Apple have other than Seagates so just give it another try.

    I received my new iMac 21.5" 3.2 i3, and it included a Western Digital drive (and no noise). Unfortunately, it has the yellow splash along the bottom of the screen, so I'll be sending it back :(

    Hopefully I don't get a bummed seagate drive instead!
