Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Other Apple Hardware" @ 03:48 AM

http://www.tuaw.com/2010/09/17/appl...-now-available/

"About a month and a half after the introduction of the 27-inch Apple Cinema Display, it's finally available on Apple's online store."

And for merely $999.00 USD you too can own one, well, in one to two weeks you can own one since that is the shipping date. Built-in iSight, microphone, 2.1 speaker system, three self-powered USB ports and more come in the package. This takes the place of the 30-inch model.

"Alongside today's release of refreshed MacBook Pros, Apple also quietly reduced the price of build-to-order upgrades for 4 GB RAM modules in its 27-inch iMacs."

Not only was there a refresh for the MacBooks, but to upgrade RAM in the 27-inch iMacs the price dropped $200.00 USD to $400.00 USD.

Apple Speaks About the 27-inch iMac Problem

"Unless you've been hiding in a cave, you'll have known that Apple was having serious issues with that gorgeous new 27-inch iMac that they released for the holidays last year (but got pulled during the holiday shopping season)."

And now Apple has said that due to "production problems" there were some issues and if you are affected, contact Apple Care. At least now you have an outlet to get your iMac fixed or replaced, officially. If you are concerned you might have one, you can go to this test and find out. If any part appears yellow, you may have one of the problem iMacs.

"New 27-inch iMac purchases direct from Apple now have a shipping wait time of 5 to 7 days, suggesting the hardware maker has addressed issues that plagued the desktops."

From months to days, we can only hope they have fixed the problems.

Apple Update for 27-inch iMacs

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Software (OS X)" @ 07:00 AM

"Apple issued an update late Monday that supposedly fixes issues with the company's 27-inch iMac display. According to notes provided with the update, the fix 'updates the display firmware on 27-inch iMac systems to address issues that may cause intermittent display flickering.'"

You can get details at Apple on this update, but it's basically firmware update for the display in hopes that it will fix the flickering issues. No mention about the fix for the yellowing screen issues.

27-inch iMac Delays, Just in Time for Christmas!

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Desktops" @ 01:00 PM

http://www.appleinsider.com/article...ent_delays.html

"Apple has acknowledged that it is working to fulfill orders for its new 27-inch iMac, though the hardware maker has not officially addressed reports of screen flickering for some users."

The video is an example of what one owner is experiencing right out of the box. So in trying to fix the problem that they have yet to acknowledge, the shipments have been delayed. Reports from other sources state delays in shipping are from two weeks to five months. Ouch. That will put a crimp in the Christmas sales.

27-inch iMac Also An External Monitor

Posted by Jeff Campbell in "Apple Desktops" @ 01:00 PM

http://blog.expandrive.com/2009/10/...ith-a-free-mac/

"Today Apple released a new 27″ iMac with impressive specs, a unibody design and an impressive LED backlit display. Somewhat hidden in the announcement is a small but important feature - the DisplayPort connection on the back of the 27″ iMacs operates both as a jack for an external monitor and also as an input for an external computer if you want to use your 27″ iMac as a monitor."

I could have used this capability a year or so ago when my older iMac died. Some were noting that they were cancelling a 30-inch Dell monitor in favor of this since it "includes a free Mac." One way to look at it I guess!
