    So i received my replacement today and I'm comparing the two 27 i7's as we speak.

    week 7 imac
    -quiet hard drive (i never thought this was an issue until i got this new one)
    -no buzzing noise when screen brightness was turned down
    -somewhat worse screen than my old one (yellowing appears to be across the right side)

    week 6 imac
    -loud hard drive (not really)
    -buzzing noise when screen brightness was turned down
    -better screen (minor yellowing across the bottom)

    Which one should I keep??

    If I had to keep one I'd pick the second one. Unless this is your work computer and you work in absolute silence, I imagine you won't hear the hdd or the buzzing when the tv is on or if you're listening to music.

    I would not settle for either of *those*. There are better machines out there - I just received a week 7 with minor to NO yellowing, no buzzing or hard drive problems. It's just the backlight bleeding that bothers the **** out of me.

    Good luck

    I agree with gan6660. Get the machine you're happy with.
