Does apple really think this will fix this???

It seems more a hardware issue then just a firmware update..

Oh well hopefully this works.

If at first you do succeed...

I think the reports of flickering and yellow tinting would have me sitting on the sidelines until the next update. I pretty much stand by my comment in the thread for the "graphics" update. I would stay clear of revision A iMacs.

This has turned me off as well. Apple should probably just halt production until the issue is fixed. I think that would give me a little more confidence about buying one.
