    My boyfriend has a 20" C2D iMac and there is natural sunlight that comes across his desk, from behind, and goes across the screen. He is worried that it may cause damage to the screen. Is there any reason to be concerned?

    The light is coming from a small window high on a wall and is only there for 15 minutes and then it's gone.

    Thank you for your assistance.

    There's nothing to worry about. Even if the sun was on the screen for 2 hours a day there would be nothing to worry about.

    No wurries. It's only thermonuclear radiation.
