So is it safe to call the iMac Core Duo a very successful Rev A product?

    Do you own an intel Mac that suffers from this issue or are you just repeating what you heard from somebody else?

    Don't fall for it just because somebody yells loudly about an issue. Do you remember the "stalling issue" with Toyota Priuses? For a while, even the press made it seem like it was affecting some many users last year. Still it turned out, Prius had the lowest percentage of users taking their cars into service (4%) for problems among every other car model. To put this number into perspective, VW Passat was the worst with over 70%.

    I have a non-Apple base station and I don't seem to have any issues, although with Apple's reputation for ease of use, it should "just work" for anybody, not for most cases. Considering people are not returning their products in droves and that there are not any highly visible news stories in the press lead me to believe this is not a major problem that affects the majority of the users. hope Of course, when a user feels helpless, it does not help whether it affects the masses. I sincerely hope Apple fixes whatever the problem is.

    In the end, after quite a few months of wide availability, I'd say it is a successful Rev A product. Of course, only time will tell about the long term reliability.

    Seeing as how my dad's Rev. A iMac G5 just now started to have logic board failure, related to the power supply issues that Apple just officially documented Feb. 11th, 2006 on their site with the "Repair Extension Program" service for these Rev. A's, I'd say it is too early to tell. If it took them 1.5 years to officially post that that their capacitors and power supplies were crap and offer a repair for them, then who knows with the intellimacs...

    Not to jinx mine or everyone's, but I've had mine for a month and a half, and it works beautifully. No wireless issues, no noise, no problems. Sure, now that I've said that, I'll just be sitting here, posting on MR, and out of nowhere it will just cra
