As I have mentioned here before If you are in the UK, I took my iMac to The iT Store in Canterbury, who fixed it for £150 inc VAT and put a 6 month warranty on it. I fould them through their eBay listing for this repair.
I have had two of these iMac's fail and they have repaired both. The first they organised collection and return via insured courier for an additional £50, but £200 is still better than a £600 new LCD. The second more recent repair I couldn't do without the iMac for even a couple of days so they agreed that if I drove it to them they would repair it same day. I popped into Canterbury city centre for a spot of lunch and within two hours I was driving home with a fully repaired iMac. The engineer even told me they have repaired a few from across Europe, and in total they have successfully repaired over 50 of these units. They even add an extra heat shield to prevent the issue re-ocurring.
Can't recommend The iT Store enough. Saved by bacon, and around £850 on the two units!!

Chesron - I wish they had a branch in Greece
You must be furious having two machines go down and I would probably do the same if I was in your shoes in getting them fixed but I really don't think we should let Apple get away with this. I don't expect they are going to help me out so perhaps if we (those who reside in Europe) all get together we can take them on - we could all chip in to cover the legal costs but perhaps the logistics of that are too complicated.
Of course if that chap in Idaho is succesful then it's job done, does anyone know how that is porogressing or when the hearing is?
