    moving or repositioning an iMac
    I have a new iMac 21.5". How sensitive is its hard drive to vibration and/or movement? Is it ok to adjust screen tilt, or adjust viewing angle by rotating the computer slightly while it is on?

    The "everything Mac" manual warns against repositioning it while it is on.

    I do it all the time. It's fine. As long as you aren't moving it like there is a 5.0 magnitude earthquake it should be fine.

    And doubt the manual is referring to adjusting the tilt/angle of the screen - more of a moving the screen to a new location where you're physically picking it up and moving it about.
    I cannot be held responsible for the things that come out of my mouth.
    In the Windows world, most everything folks don't understand is called a virus.
