Re: Angry Users Rail About 27-Inch iMac Problems

See Full Story

Upwards of hundreds of users have posted negative comments about their brand-new iMac computers on the Web. The majority appear to reference problems with the displays, while a sizeable minority point to problems with the processor; some are complaints about cracked screens. Most of the reports were about problems with 27-inch iMacs. Apple Web sites show there's now a two-week delivery lead time for these PCs. This is apparently so Apple can replace the graphics card.


Thanks for the news.

I received my iMac 27 Core i7 as scheduled two weeks ago. It's the best desktop computer ever! What a performance! What a display! It's beautiful and simply fantastic!

Anyone who says something different is either just trying to attract traffic to his/her blog or paid by the competition to spread lies."

Thank you so much for setting things straight. I am glad you took a sample of one whole machine and declared that everyone else is spreading lies. I guess by extension since you were able to type your comments it has the best keyboard ever created by man!

Best desktop ever!

Great! You like your computer. I have an Imac 24", from ancient 2008. It's dandy.

But this all-or-nothing statement accusing anyone who has a different opinion than you of being shady is a terrible, awful argument, weak on so so many levels. The best thing you personally can do to support your position, apparently, is not say anything.

Lalala I can't hear you!

Putting my fingers in my ears, yelling, and stamping my feet are my usual reaction to news I don't like, too.

My IMac has been a headache since I purchased it. The logic board was replaced three times, two of which cost me over $1000 total. It also had the power supply replaced which they covered. The second time it was replaced the capacitors swelled and leaked 2 months out of the 90 day window. They covered the labor but I had to pick up the part for $500. Very disappointed in Mac. If you're not a new purchaser you're off their radar and they couldn't care less. I JUST picked it up from the "genius bar" after the last repair. This thing cost me $2500 brand new. Unemployed designer looking at a very dismal Christmas.

stop hitting your computer, your children, and yourself

Apple Care seems pretty cheap, now, huh?

Merry Christmas to you too.

Must feel good giving basically an, "I told you so," to a guy out of work at Christmas. I thought MACs were these very stable, high end pieces of equipment. Yet unless you buy there extor....uh...Apple Care you're sorta screwed.
Jump to:
If my employer requires me to return to the company's office full-time to perform my job, I will...
Agree, because I like my job regardless of where I perform my duties.
Comply, because I can't afford to lose my current job.
Go with the flow, but start looking for different employment.
Resign immediately, so I can dedicate all of my time to find a job that better suits my needs.
Try to negotiate a hybrid work from home / work in office arrangement with my employer.
