    iMac has arrived. Return was unecessary.
    I recieved my replacement 24" iMac on Monday. I returned it because I was gettting kernel panics and didn't know why. Applecare was unable to resolve the issue so they sent me a new one. Well, this one did it too. Same problem with the exact same cause.

    To make a long story short, it was only my Airport Extreme base station. It just needed to be reset.

    At least this new one doesn't have any dead/stuck pixels. The last one had about five of them in a little patch at the bottom.

    Where did you buy it from? I am having a problem with Macmall.com.
    Pay no attention to that thing on the floor, it's just a hairball.
