I've had an iMac for nearly two months and I just found out what I thought was a mouse pad is actually the cleaning cloth!

And to top it off, I complained about how the mouse pad would slide around with the mouse on the table, so I quit using it.

that's something quite special

for a long time I didn't know how to eject CDs despite the presence of an eject key on my MB keyboard, and I so didn't get how I had all these apps open when I could've SWORN I closed them. Nup, these bad boys stay on ^^

how can you even use it as a mouse pad?
as you said, it slides around with the mouse very easily causing the mouse to not even work.

Hahaha that's brilliant, the world's thinnest mousepad

Ok, I can't top it, but my stupidity was pretty grand the first day I got mine (Monday) I was importing some CDs into iTunes, and I became convinced I'd got a CD stuck in the drive (it wasn't showing up in finder) I was stressing so much after trying all the tricks to get it out, and thought I'd have to send my brand new machine back after just a day.

The next day I went to show my friend the empty CD case, and there was Coldplay's 2nd album just sitting in there...I promptly inserted a CD and realised what an idiot I was! I honestly don't know what point in time I forgot taking the CD out...what a muppet!

I didn't know the difference between a Core Duo and Core 2 Duo iMac. I bought a refurb. 20" Core Duo last year because it was $100 cheaper than the newer model. I felt so dumb after I got it.

You mean it isn't? So far, the coffee-cup holder pop-out tray has cost me $1,500 in repairs, and Apple won't answer my complaint emails.
