Ever since receiving my 24″ iMac about six months ago I’ve been experiencing system freezes requiring a complete shutdown and restart of the system. In several cases, as I’ve blogged about, this has corrupted my hard drive, in one case so bad that Disk Utility could not recover it. I had to buy a copy of Disk Warrior in order to recover.
Now Apple acknowledges the problem and promises to fix it.
Update: Apple apparently issued a fix for the aluminum iMac’s not the plastic one I own. I’ve tried to install the fixes they released but they refuse to install telling me that my system doesn’t need the fix. Which means that I continue to be stuck with a piece of crap iMac that freezes a couple of times a day. Thanks Apple – if I’d wanted a Windows machine I’d have bought one.
