Apple's new 27” Macs are really gorgeous, powerful machines with a painfully high price tag. Most Mac customers consider that high price a worthy sacrifice for the quality and reliability that comes with Apple products. Unfortunately, if these reports filtering in from the Apple support forums are anything to go by, Apple's latest Mac could have some problems. Engadget states that most of the complaints are due to a bug that causes the new Mac's hard drive to spin down, issues with slow Flash playback, and a possible corrupted build of Snow Leopard.
There's been no official word from Apple about this yet, but new users continue to complain. This is far from an epidemic, but enough people have spoken up to make it noteworthy. There's even a video that shows the Flash issue occuring. Again, this could just be due to a few bad machines, or a few users blowing minor, isolated issues out of proportion.
Whatever the truth is, you can expect an Apple response on this issue before too long. If something is wrong, they'll want it fixed. If this really is nothing, they'll want to clear their name. Either way, I'd be surprised if we don't hear something within the next couple of weeks. Meanwhile, if you're having problems with your 27” Mac, let us know in the comments.
