Default Re: iMac G5 !!!good things and bad things!!!

I have a boat load of iMac G5s now as well as iMac G4s still. There is some great info being posted on the Apple forum and I resolved my fan noise issues on 4 loud iMac G5s by replacing the midplane. They are very quiet now as advertised, but before that they were intolerable. Apple is trying to tell people that the fan noise is normal to cover up for poor quality control on the first releases. I'd wait until this summer for things to clear up before jumping on a new one. If you do end up with a loud one, then be persistent with tech support and don't settle for any BS. I have better luck working with them online and getting a product specialist right away.
