I was one of the first to buy that machine, and now, I'm consumed with anger. I have exactly the same problems as the guy here : http://www.techulous.com/news/the-new-2010-imacs-and-poor-quality-control.html "We don't sell junk" said Jobs... yeah, sure. SHAME ON YOU APPLE !!! Had I read this before, I would at least have ordered the 2TB model, to avoid the noisy Seagate HDD. And the "dog whistle" has to be repaired in a Apple store. I don't have time for this. I will never, never buy another Apple computer right after its release in the future. And I advise you to do the exact same thing. They're going cheap just like everybody else. UPDATE Check out the third page to see how the things worked out for me.
