    If you can deal with it, then keep it. If not, call Apple to exchange it for a new one. I heard that many of them have different problem so if it's not really bad, I suggest to keep it. You might get a worse one, it all depends on how lucky you are. Kinda sad right ? :D

    I ended up sending it back for refund and ordered a new i7 they were nice about it and gave me expedited shipping and 10% off new one . No problems returning it hopefully have new one this week

    That's a really good deal. Hope my new Refurb iMac would have a lot of problems so that I can change it for a new one like you :p

    Shoot, my new i7 has issues.

    Yellow tint, cracked LCD, gray streak along the bottom. Not at all worth $2K IMO

    I'm picking my i7 Refurb at TNT's satellite today... I really hope it'll be perfect...If not, not sure what I want to do. Try another refurb or try to negotiate a new one with a discount.

    I'm a long time Apple customer, I wonder if that kind of argument works? I can honestly say I've had very few problems with my :apple: products. Hopefully, that will not end soon!
