Hey there,

In spite of careful browsing, I haven't been able to find any information regarding the use of GNU/Linux (be it Debian or Ubuntu) on the high-end iMac models which last came out (iMac 11,3 - 27" - mid 2010 - with either HD 5670 or HD 5750 for graphics).

I'm considering buying the iMac 11,3 with an i5 or i7 processor (I don't care much about the graphics chip, provided it works with open source drivers and provides accelerated 2D graphics - 3D is not important for me right now).

I'd be glad to read stories, be they successful or not, and/or be pointed towards documentation I may have missed. A thread on this very forum (http://ubuntuforums.org/showthread.php?t=1476226) describes a persistent "black screen" issue on the iMac 11,1 model.

However, there's no mention of the 11,3 model, which ships with different graphics as stated above.

Thanks a lot in advance for your input!
