    Unhappy Problem with 24" iMac display!
    Hi guys, I have a very weird problem with my 24" iMac. For some reason it seems that after approx. 10 minutes using the Mac, whenever I keep a window on top of another window and then I minimize it, it keeps there like a ghost for another 5-10 seconds until it fades away slowly slowly.

    Sometimes it's hard to see it however it's very evident when using a white window (such as Safari) on a dark background (not black).

    I'm attaching an image split into 2 parts, the 2nd part is shot exactly after I minimised the browser. It clearly shows a faded ghost image on the grey Photoshop canvas.

    Here's the pic:

    Has anyone ever experienced a problem similar to mine? or am I getting paranoid?

    By the way, I bought this Mac, 5 months ago and I don't know whether this problem has been there from the beginning but I only noticed recently while cropping in Photoshop and still seeing the parts I removed away very faded.

    Make an appointment with your local Apple store genius bar to take it in and let them have a look at it. The "ghosting" as you call it is certainly not normal. You may have a defective display but there could be other reasons for the "ghosting".
