Hello, i purchased almost one year ago a 27" iMac. The iMac itself is a refurb and i believe its the 2009 model. It is the 2.66 i5 model. I have returned it twice prior to writing this due to a black line which seems to appear and has appeared twice before. A couple of weeks ago i noticed that once again a black line has appeared and it is starting to irritate me. Apple have also said that because this is the third repair i will receive a new iMac. This is only the case because it has repeated replacements on the same piece of hardware. I have Apple Care and i plan on returning the machine later this week. Has any one here had any experience with returning a machine and gaining a new one. Will they give me another refurb, i know that as of writing this they do not have any of the exact models on the refurb store and im guessing stock of these are running dry due to it being a 2009 model. Will they just give me a brand new machine. I would just like to know what to expect. Please share your experiences Many thanks, George.
