    Pixel Checks @ The Apple Store
    Hello all,

    Going to get a new loaded iMac today since I just returned my "old" one to BB yesterday.

    My question, can I have a genius do a pixel check before plunking down in excess of 2200 bucks?

    ibook g4, imac 2ghz c2d, mbp 2.4ghz c2d - 10.5.1
    Do you mean on the new one ?

    I think once the seal is opened its only valid as a basic warranty i.e. if the whole screen dies on you within 12 months

    Otherwise I assume apple care is needed.

    Yes the new one.

    Meaning, before I buy the machine will Apple check it before I purchase it. Best Buy does this type of thing for all monitors to ensure the customer gets a perfect monitor every time. (They don't advertise this service though)

    No computer manufacturer, including Apple, will guarantee a "perfect" monitor every time. It is simply the nature of the technology.

    If a retailer does this, then that burden lies on them. If you feel more secure by having a retailer do this, then I would suggest buying your equipment from them.
