Apple I bought a brand new iMac on Tuesday. I'm pretty sure this will come as a surprise to some, so I figured I might as well offer some background information about this choice - maybe it'll help other people who are also pondering what to buy as their next computer.

All Aluminiums Macs are know that have problem with dust in LCD panel!

Yes, i change Three times display in 2010. 27" iMac and find quite astonishing that Apple did not fix this issue for THREE years!!!

It is like Porshe 911 - if you cut right plate with 20$ saw you can open it in 2.34 minutes. Porshe never fix this issue - it is way better to ignore it than to give it meddian attention.

I wouldn't trust Apples warranty.

But then I'm in Sweden and not the US.

Also this service shit doesn't make any sense. ATM we actually do have a Apple premium seller / service whatever in this town since they are popular nowadays but we didn't earlier.

But regardless the computer store at the university do warranty repairs for kinda all brands so you can likely go there with your ASUS laptop or whatever.

Back when I didn't wanted my Dell IPS screen due to the stupid anti-glare (I hate the idiots who argue for that thing, they don't get they argue for spreading light over the screen?) they paid for the return even though there was nothing wrong with it. It worked very smoothly.

My MBP was the most stupid purchase ever if you also include the price of it.
