Engadget reports that an increasing number of consumers are experiencing an array of problems with Apple’s new 27-inch i7 iMac.
in addition to the previously-noted performance issues with the Core 2 Duo models, a quick glance across Apple’s support forums and on other Mac boards around the web reveals that some machines are showing up DOA and / or with cracked screens. We’re a little more familiar with the DOA issue, since the new i7 we just bought doesn’t boot at all, but the cracked screen issue seems to be equally common and mostly affecting the bottom left corner, from what we can tell.
Yikes. Nothing spoils a $2,000 purchase more than a machine that flat out doesn’t work.
