Hi guys!

Ok so i now have my iMac 27" i7 up and running! Great bit of kit indeed!! just a few questions that i would be grateful if someone can help with please?

1. My HD makes grumble noises, now i can put up with this no problem if i know its not a fault! dont want to pay almost 2000 for faulty goods!

2. I have owned macs for a long time but mostly MBP, this one seems very slow at starting up, the apple logo does not appear for about 20-30sec then i get the spinning wheel, 10-15sec then i will hear the hard drive and it will boot up, twice for no reason it has booted into safe??

Please keep in mind guys this is brand new! not had a chance yet to install anything that may cause this.....

Thanks guys!!

If you feel there are issues with your new iMac...take it back to the Apple Store for examination.
