    Hi there,

    Sorry for my crap english, i speak dutch normally so. After a lot of troubles with my new MacBook Pro ive send that thing back to Apple. I need a stable and fast computer because Im in my last year of graphic design / visual arts. I live 2min from campus so I dont need a portable because I can work at home and bring my assignments to campus on external drive and edit them on the iMacs at campus.

    I wanna buy the basic iMac 21,5 because I already own a second monitor and the 27 is just to huge for me. Im wondered if all problems with yellow tinge, screen flicker etc are fixed. Because I need an accuratie color on screen for printing.

    Thanks in advance

    well, i bought the 21.5 inch iMac and I truly love it.Even tough the screen issues aren't fixed, I think that the these are more of a problem with the 27 inch displays. Perhaps you were just one of the few unlucky buyers that got a crappy macbook.

    iMacs are great, wouldn't worry about the yellow screen too much. You can always take it back. Sorry to hear about your MacBook Pro.

    I went with 21.5 iMac, no screen problems and a joy to use, especially with Magic Trackpad. (makes zooming easy for my poor old eyes, and the gestures are a joy!
