I am using the iMac 24 inches (2.8Ghz)
Several times I noticed Moisture forming under the protection glass... I noticed that the image on the screen is blurry, thought first that it was smth on the screen, when I tried to remove it with a tissue I realized it is under the glass...

Did anybody have the same problem?
Is it dangerous for my iMac?
What can be the causes of it?

Any kind of moisture getting in to the machine or behind the view glass of the monitor is not something you want.

Where do you live? Are you using your machine in an air conditioned room or in a place where the humidity is high?

Sometimes condensation can form because of rapid changes in temperature - that should be avoided. Usually though after equipment warms up the condensation will disappear.

Regards.

During the years I worked with main frames, it was absolutely mandatory to keep humidity levels low and an ambient temperature in accordance with manufacturer specs. If at all possible, keep the Air on low but make sure it's removing humidity from the surrounding area.

As I mentioned in my first reply, it's rapid changes in temperature and humidity which will cause condensation to occur. The problem with condensation buildup is that after awhile it forms scales and ridges at the lowest point of run off or where it dries. You definitely don't want that to happen to your iMac. I'm not sure Apple would cover that kind of damage under its warranty.

Regards.
