Hi people, I have just got a beautiful early 2011 21.5" i7 iMac, thing is there is a small dent in the stand at the back, ok I can't see it unless I look, but its bugging me after I saw it and yes I am an OCD type. Applecare say they will replace it, but I have been though the mill of exchanging iMacs before with yellow screen rumbling hard drives etc. The screen on my one is pretty perfect with no yellowing (I cant see it anyway) no wifi issues and it is whisper quiet with a WD Black HDD and an even quiter superdrive (my friends imac base 2011 model same superdrive is really noisey) so I'm torn.


Do i keep it knowing I could get a worse one second or yes a perfect one, but it is still a lottery, or do I suck it up and be glad it works so well. I know the answer is down to me but just throwing it out for some opinions from the folks on forum to help me decide.

iMac, Mac OS X (10.6.7), 21.5 Early 2011 i7 2.8Ghz, 8Gb ram.
