  1. Whew thats a relief. My work is going to be getting me one of these, but when they heard about this they decided to hold back on it, hopefully now I can get my nice 24″ mm glossy black and glass, its like crack for nerds.

  2. Well, I had not that much freezing problems but much pixel glitches on my desktop. After I installed the update my iMac freezed and I had more pixel problems as before – its now in repair – they told me to replace the video card. For me, this fix didn’t helped me 🙁
