I've had more problems myself with the old emacs than i have ever had with with any of the imacs, and considering our imacs, and i suspect a large majority of macs in education are used for reasonably heavy video/ image work i would expect them to have a higher failure rate than the run of the mill desktop. That said perhaps i've just been fortunate.

A little under £400 for screen, fitting and delivery costs. Although we have taken lots apart now so would probably do the screens ourselves once Apple stop accepting them back as it was a known fault.

We have 90 IMac and 11 Macbooks on site.
40 of the IMacs have just come out of their 3yr Extended AppleCare (as of August) and I've had a couple fail due to dodgy RAM modules and CD Drives failing.
Luckily they were fairly easy to fix (youtube videos and various MacFixIt sites help a lot!)
We've also had to send back 3 of the 11 Macbooks due to batteries failing, one had to be sent back twice!
So far the failure rate is less than the older Dell laptops we have. The Dell engineer is here about once a week to replace a motherboard but it still isn't great.
