My 27" iMac is two months out of warranty and the screen on the left has gone 40% darker. Is this a big problem to fix?
Welcome to the Apple Support Communities
It looks like the display is damaged. Take the Mac to an Apple Store to get the display repaired, but the display isn't the cheapest part of the Mac
Not a Big Problem but costly. Take it to Apple and get an estimate for the repair. Then decide to do it or connect an external monitor.
Oh and just Another Fine Apple Product.
You might want to have a go at this yourself. Much cheaper option.
