    A issues that's existed since )ct. 2009 update

    You have the same problem as me with a 10 month old BTO iMac i7 27in that's had hardly any real use.

    First and foremost, its within Warranty so get them to change the LCD monitor - don't let them allegedly clean it - swap the LCD out.

    To-date, having owned 5 post October 2009 iMacs in both sizes I've had to swap out four monitors and exchange two new machines due to yellow screen issues - Apple are fully aware of the issue and have failed 100% to address it.

    Hence, and like many others, it pays to know your consumer rights - particularly we have been sold lemons from day one - evidence again that Apple is more interested in iToy's rather than work machines - the high end i7 being a workhorse rather than pretty play thing - hence continual repairs, even under warranty, cost me time off work and lost income - perhaps if Apple paid more attention to quality, rather than its share price this issue would not exist.
