I'm very happy with mine. My only complaint is no jumbo frame support so backups to my drobofs so backups are a little slow. The speed is great I got the ssd option and upgraded the ram to 12gb.

I LOVE mine. But if that's you in the avatar then I also love you, so what's that mean? :lol:

No, seriously, I switched over to Mac about a year or so ago and it's just amazing that crashes are no longer a part of my life. I am punishing the hell out of my 27" iMac with Photoshop and multiple layers and plug-ins going on at once, never even blinks. And that's with 8 gigs RAM, so I'm jealous of your machine.

Yep, I'm a happy chappy with this system. :cool:

LOL, you dog! But it is a nice pic.
I've had mine for almost a year now and love it. The screen alone is worth it. Going to this from a PowerBook G4 blew my mind.

First one had minor leaking and some flickering, software update fixed the flickering and the lightleaking really wasn't a big deal. My new imac is perfect

I got one of the first ones. No problems whatsoever. Added more ram from OWC. Fast as I can use. Can encoded BD movies to AppleTV faster than realtime.

New ones have the SDD option for system drive which speeds up some things considerably.

Tell me - how do you add more RAM? Can you do it yourself? I am a techno-idiot, so be gentle.

I LOVE my iMac 27". Love it. Had it for one year. No problems (or incredibly minor)

I wouldn't put much weight on any open poll. There's no way to tell how many sincere opinions were voiced. In the past seven months we've purchased over 190 iMac's and I didn't see any problem with them. I've been to two Apple stores and three Best Buys in that same time and only saw one with a yellowish cast in one corner. Apple sells a little over a million computers a month. Statistically speaking, you are going to see more PC's from each manufacture fail within the first six months than you would see a iMac with a problem. If the manufacture was HP or Gateway, their failures are almost double that of Apple (percentage).

When something goes wrong with an Apple product it's big news. When something goes wrong with a PC, it's par for the course. That's because it's so rare that Apple products have serious issues. That's why Apple is number one in ever category they sell in (according to PCMag, Consumer Reports, Amazon and many others). You can call it consumer stupidity or blindness, but the numbers are pretty solid.

If you really have a problem with the screen Apple will replace it. Also, if you go to an Apple store, just open it up and test it there. There are tests that can be saved on a thumb drive to see if the screen has that problem.

Well I have run into disastrous problems with Mac's before so I wouldn't feel immune to issues if I got another one.

Having said that, you're right, the Apple care is really good. I use a custom PC for most stuff so obviously no help for me... but luckily none of my PC's have run into problems, touch wood!
