I got another call back from Apple today. They informed me that they "cannot reproduce the issue", even though yesterday I was told that they had found the issue and were working on a fix.
After spending a lot of time troubleshooting this issue both on the phone and by myself, I have decided to return my iMac and just buy a Dell.
Apple does not want to recognize the issue at all, and instead of taking the problem seriously and trying to troubleshoot the issue, they feel that its alright to waste my time, redirecting me to people who can't solve the issue and not taking the problem seriously.
I was told that one engineer said that "He had never heard of the problem before," and that therefore it was just a problem with my hard drive.
Apple markets themselves as having the "best support"; however, this has probably been the worst customer support experience I have had with a computer company. I worked with representatives from AppleCare, executive relations personnel and product specialists.
This clearly is a very a serious issue, but Apple engineering refuses to even admit that it exists.
