This sucks: Just got my new Alu iMac...freezes, dead pixels, and yellowing gradient.

    :mad:

    Not sure what my recourse is here, I bought it from Amazon.

    Let me know if anybody wants to see a pic, it's really really bad.

    Sounds like you got the triple wammy. That's a bummer. Return it at once.

    You get points for humor.

    That's about it though.

    Sorry, couldn't resist.

    I did just get my iMac 24" 2.4.

    It's awesome. No problems.

    To those of us that really have freezing iMacs, that's not even funny.

    Didn't mean to bring anybody down, these are really nice machines.

    Freezing issues do sound like a bitch, though. Hopefully Apple gets that right and soon.

    OMG!

    It didn't come preinstalled with LEOPARD? :eek: For shame.

    I know! I'm thinking about returning it since it didn't come with Leopard pre-installed.

    It didn't even have FCP 2 or Adobe CS3 installed. ;)

    Return?

    How much to ship back to Amazon? Email them and ask for the $9.99 mail-in coupon and install Leo yourself and save your money in shipping.....

    You're right! After 20 minutes of taking it out of the box, condensation has occurred. These machines are rubbish.

    Me too. My 24" aluminum's fortunately not freezing but I'm sure I could see the humor in this even if it were.
