There should be an image here!So your 27″ iMac screen is not playing ball, shows vertical lines and whatnot. Guess what Apple fans – you are out of luck. Yes, your friends at Apple are not going to be of much help outside of offering near useless firmware updates it seems.

It’s really unfortunate as Apple feels that their firmware update has addressed the flickering screen problems for some people, while leaving others to still deal with it. Clearly, as stated in TechCrunch, this is a mixed bag of solutions.

I for one, would be livid if I spend coin on a 27″ iMac only to find that I am looking at something with a flickering screen. Seriously, Apple controls the hardware and the software here – how is this acceptable?
