I'm also interested in an answer to wkchan's question regarding whether the imac is backlit by white or tri-color LED's. Thanks!
Quote from gUrU:
I own a 27" iMac that has this edge-to-edge glass broken at left side.
Monitor is still intact. I cant exactly understand how to remove this surrounding glass.
Do i need to use the suction cups on the surrounding glass so to remove it from the magnets? Cause on the photo the cups are placed on the Monitor..
There have been a number of reports on the Apple forums of the glass being broken on the bottom left side. If you have an Apple store nearby, you can ask them to replace the glass (they will have to get the replacement glass shipped to the store), otherwise call Apple support to obtain a replacement machine.
