Some new Core i7 iMacs dead on arrival Some buyers have reported receiving their new Core i7 iMacs with cracked screens, or that fail to boot up at all.
By  Jason Saundalkar Published  November 25, 2009 has learnt that some buyers of Apple's newer Core i7 (Nehalem)-based iMac machines have received their purchases with cracked screens. Apple's own support forums have a number of complaints regarding this issue while others report that their brand new machines simply won't boot.

According to the support forums the cracks are limited to the bottom left corner of the screens and users believe Apple may have a quality control issue with regards to its shipping and handling. Apple is currently shipping replacement units to customers affected by either issue.

This is not the first time customers have had issues with Apple's machines. A number of users have complained about Serial ATA hard drive issues and display problems in the past and despite Apple issuing numerous firmware updates, certain users still report problems to date.

Apple's new iMacs offer a wireless keyboard and ship with the company's new Magic Mouse. These machines also support up to 16GB of memory and offer 16:9 display screens with resolutions as high as 2560 x 1440 pixels.

Apple's notebooks and desktops have traditionally retailed at higher prices than their equally specified PC counterparts.
