So, to my horror, my 2011 iMac's 27" screen failed to turn on when booting up last night. After a brief freak out, I did some research and tried to fix it with an SMC reset and a PRAM boot, but to no avail. I checked with a flashlight if I could see the screen and it was just the backlight that had failed, but nothing. Finally, checked the system was still functional by logging in through the network, and the files were accessible, which is a relief. My last iMac was a white Core 2 Duo from 2006, and had lasted me 5 years without ever needing a service, so I'd neglected to get the AppleCare when buying my current model last June. LAST JUNE. Checked my one-year warranty online, only to find out it runs out today. Taking it to the Apple repair shop near me this afternoon, but God damn that was close. But now I'm wondering, should I get it fixed, flog it and buy something newer? or get AppleCare on this one and upgrade the SSD at the same time as the repair give it another two years? I love it, it does everything I want it to with aplomb and it makes me cash money. But are these black screen problems a fault with this model? Or might I experience this with any all-in-one? Cheers!
