    Hello,

    I just recently switched to the new 24" 2.4 gHz iMac. I was playing world of warcraft, and all of a sudden the graphics had turned to a green hue displayed as numerous vertical lines interlaced among the pixels. Exiting out to the desktop didn't fix this, but a reboot did. Is this something I should call apple about? I figure the thing possible overheated.... any other ideas?

    Call / take back to Apple pronto. I would say you are odds on right about overheating. :(

    I can't remember where the thread is on Macrumors...but they linked to a thread in the WoW Forums that said there was a bug between the new iMacs and WoW and that Blizzard and Apple were working on fixing it. That was last week so I figured (would hope) they would have it fixed by now. I'm getting my iMac soon and want to play some WoW after being MIA for 2 months due to lack of computer.

    I'll look for the original thread.

    That's the link to the WoW Forum, it looks like the bug has been fixed through a software update, so if you have that update and it is still messing up...I feel for you :(

    Did it look like the pic below by any chance? I had the same problem also with a 24'' 2.4ghz. Mine's going back too.

    As a matter of fact it did... Any other suggestions on what may be going on? And if people with this problem should return this thing?

    You should definitely return it. I heard the problem has something to do with overheating...

    Thanks for the heads up... Is there any word on whether this is a specific problem with individual units, or is this problem more prevasive amongst the new iMac line?

    Individual units, it's very common that some are defect, world can't be perfect :D, :) it's great that apple doesn't release 100% defects products like MS (xbox 360 :D lol )

    Let's not forget the mountains of thermal paste on EVERY macbook processor.
