I just received a replacement 21.5" iMac, week 51, and has not such problems as far as I can tell. Week 49 (the other one), had a yellow tinge near the bottom.
Had my i7, 8gb, 1TB, week 50 unit up and running for a few days now. Delivery to UK was December 22, well ahead of the original January 8 estimate.
There are far fewer being reported with problems on the iMac issues site. I'm pretty optimistic that Apple has figured out and solved the manufacturing issues and shipping issues.
+1I'm waiting for more data to come in... 3 out of the 14 week-52 macs on that site still had screen issues that weren't fixed by the firmware. It's for sure a better ratio than prior weeks, but still not a great % in absolute terms.
The WXXXXXXXX that the people are chatting about is the serial of the computer - not your W order number.Isn't mine a week 73model? W5773xxxx?
Mine was ordered thru apple online store December 10 or there abouts was promised before Christmas, but then the 2week thing Happen.
Mine should be arriving fine with no issues?
Also since u got yours before the 8th I should get mine before the 11th Jan then? Cause it ships 5th Jan apparently but there is still a chance it can come this week coming right?
If your serial number was W**50******, then that would be a week 50 machine. Serial number is usually detailed on the invoice of your iMac purchase and also in the "About This Mac" on the top left drop down menu (once you've selected this menu option just click on the "More Info" Box).Which part of the serial number can I use to tell what week my iMac was made?
