Looks like it was DOA from Apple.
btw: the CD is good because I already installed the program on my MBAir.
Oh yea, the Apple external "Superdrive" only works with the Air, you cannot use it with the iMac.
As soon as finances allow I'm dumping Macs.
Crap happens to all of them, Apple buys the same inside stuff that all the rest buy and it's all made in China. While I haven't had any problems I got an email from Apple saying the HDD in my 2011 IMac "may" fail, I think it's made by seagate, and Apple is going to go ahead and replace it all free of charge. Never had another company treat me like that. I think their customer service is what sits them a notch above others plus you can actually understand them if you ever have to call.
