Sorry not Mac Air related but Apple doesn't have a topic for this by itself and I guessed most of the people who have used one had Airs.


Just bought one for my wife's iMac (running 10.8.2. and is fine apart from a dead optical drive).


Plugged it in nothing (wouldn't accept a disc let alone display it on the desktop).


Restarted, nothing.


Not recognised by Disk Utility.


Not bad for something bought 15 mins ago.


Of course Apple support want a serial number (which these don't have) before I can start an on line support session.


Looks like another day wasted on the 'phone to Apple support on Monday and then arranging an exchange and other PITA issues.


Whatever happened to "Boom, it just works"


RIP - Steve.

iMac, OS X Mountain Lion (10.8.2)
