    I got a 27 inch imac at the apple store. On the side I found a small chip out of the aluminum so I returned it. The new one has a similar chip it's a black chip about the size of two pinheads.
    Should I return this one or is this normal in the manufacturing process. I hate to be "OCD " over this but I also spent close to 3000. Could anyone else check the sides of the machine to see if there new imac has these marks?

    If you spent 3000 you have the right to be OCD, return it. Open the next one at the store and check for damages before you bring it home, just in case.

    you know, if you don't shake them out of the box when you unpack them, those chips tend to be invisible... :D

    My take on things is if you are not happy with it return it! You are paying for it to be perfect! that's why we pay a high price!

    If things aren't sent back and Apple made aware that's when quality starts to slip!

    And certainly don't listen to the ones that will burn you for doing so by saying you have OCD!

    I remember when I got my macbook air I returned it 2 times (3 units)
    the first one had a scratch about 2cm long below the apple
    the second one had 5 dead pixels
    the third one was good enough for me but it had problems that came up later :( (resolved though)

    bottomline return it.

    Return the computer and get a replacement, it is not acceptable

    There are many people in the thread who obviously don't know what OCD is.

    Get some silver touchup paint out and it is gone. Seriously I thought that these machines were made of aluminium. Is the iMac been painted or something, why is there black under the surface?

    The third one seems to be okay. There is a small teeny tiny mark, that you can only see if you have a flashlight and can know where it is at. The manager at the apple store told me to return them tip I got a perfect model. I am going to keep this one.

    Why were you looking at your iMac with a flashlight? That's a little extreme. Even if there is a mark it will oxidize and be less noticeable. I know because my MBP came with a mark and eventually blended in pretty well.

    When you buy a PC like the iMac it better be perfect.
