    So, I've been having this weird 'issue' with my iMac for a while.
    My desk basically starts to slightly vibrate when I turn my iMac on. And this has happened on both of my desks.

    So, I basically didn't pay much attention to that until today. I adjusted my screen literally less than a inch, and it made a door squeaking noise. And it sounded like a really old door. Basically every time I adjust it, it sounds that way.

    Also, the stand is basically being vibrated at all times when the iMac is on.

    So, if I call Apple, will they actually replace the stand? Do they even do such things?

    calling and asking them would probably grant you the most accurate information

    I would not risk it. That stand is supporting a lot. You should call Apple and get it repaired or replaced.

    Yup, just did that. Apparently I have to bring it into the Apple store and let them take care of it. And they're also suppose to fix my backlight bleed issue with my screen.

    I'm gonna assume that it'll take them 2 weeks to fix this, since it took one and a half weeks for them to replace a HDD.
