Now that listenupsteve.com no longer exists, I have no clue where to check whether or not this issue has been addressed in the May 2011 release of the iMacs. I think Seagate drives were the biggest culprit noise-wise; are they still being used in this new update? And while we're at it, are yellow screens still an issue? Would love to hear feedback from anyone who's bought one of the new iMacs. Thanks!
I have last year's iMac and have no problem with a yellowing screen or noisy hard drive. Did it ever occur to you that maybe you just got a bad unit and there's no inherent "issue" to be fixed? Those things do happen.


Please verify and include the exact model/year of your Mac and OS X version number (available from "About This Mac", then "More Info" on the Apple menu).
