"Last November, Robert McGovern bought a 27-inch iMac equipped with a quad-core Core i7 processor. When it arrived 12 days later, McGovern, a British citizen living in Germany, happily went about setting up his new desktop machine. That happiness lasted about half-an hour."
At that time he found out his screen was getting a yellowish tint along the edge and joined the many (at least from what the discussion board responses are showing) customers that are reporting the same problem to Apple. The biggest hurdle in these types of cases is to get Apple to acknowledge that a problem exists. Well now they have and are in the process of getting these machines fixed, however the turnaround on the 27-inch iMac for example, is about three weeks. If you want to find out if your machine may be one of the potentially jaundiced ones, check out this chart. There is also a lengthy write-up over at Gizmodo on this issue.
