About a month ago I decided to take the plunge...got rid of my trusty old PC and replaced it with a new iMac.

A week ago my new iMac's power supply died. So after driving to two different apple stores (one didn't have parts) and standing in line for an hour at each I was told the repair would be complete in 3-5 days. Cool, thanks for having me wait in line just to drop the system off.

I got the system back today and stuck between the lcd and the outer glass was this metal object:



This object scratched up the glass cover and the lcd behind it. The top of the casing is also scratched up from when the techs either moved the system around or laid it down. Unfortunately Apple the customer relations office is closed until Monday.

Maybe Apple will replace the system but they can't make up for the many hours I've wasted dealing with this and related headaches from my 'NEW' iMac.

Be cautious when taking your computers in for repair, obviously some apple geniuses(laugh) are not very thorough.

My apologies for this treatment, this is very uncommon... I suggest you demand 1 thousand cookies from whoever screwed you iMac up or you get them fired! Lol

Always so many complaints about genius bar. If your mac dies, can you take it to an independent Apple dealer for repair?

So you took it out? If you did, I would put it back in. If you took it out as proof, there really isn't any anymore. They could simply state that you damaged it when you opened the case and not pay to replace a thing, if you understand where I am coming from. Was it returned in a box? If not, you could have/ should have inspected it.

How did you take that metal object out? You took apart your iMac?

Yeah, you should have left it in its original condition to show them.

In fact, you should probably power any repaired Mac up in the store before you haul it home...just in case.

when i took it out of the box and set it on the table, it fell out and the glass went back in to place. Judging by the scratches under the glass it seems to have been jammed somewhere around the rim and traveled around during transportation. o well.. stuff happens, im sure it was an accident that it got left in there im just bummed that they also nicked up the top of the case.

If it was assembled correctly, no way would there be space to let pieces fall out. Take it back to get it looked at, properly assembled and ask for the glass and scratched parts to be changed as well. This is shabby workmanship and is unacceptable.
