Apple ships new iMac to Louis Lombardi (Edgar Stiles on the FOX hit ‘24’)

Early yesterday morning, we were contacted by actor Louis Lombardi who plays Edgar Stiles on Fox’s hit TV show “24.” Mr. Lombardi clarified the specific of the Mac models he owns (iMac G5 and his more recently purchased Powerbook G4 17-inch; no problems with the PowerBook, but extremely frustrating issues with the iMac G5) and he thanked us for covering his story, originally reported by Evan Jacobs for MovieWeb, this past Saturday night, hoping it would catch the attention of someone at Apple.

Apparently Lombardi’s story has caught the attention of “someone” at Apple as Mr. Lombardi informed us late last night that “Steve Jobs agrees that the computer should not breakdown as many times as it has” and “is sending a new one.” iMac Core Duo, we presume, and probably loaded to the gills.

  1. Hello my name is Brad Pitt.. My recently purchased Powermac quad keeps breaking down and I’m tired of this run around I’ve been getting..

    Please send me a new Quad core PowerMac to the following address.

    6235 Flower Ave
    Malibu, Ca.

  2. I know he thinks he is more important than the rest of us in that he can raise a bigger stink than the rest of us, (he can and therefore he is) But to put things in perspective, I’ve never heard of him. And I consider me a TV junky.

  3. Uh, Apple, my iMac isn’t working just like I want it to, either. Would you please send me a Quad PPC G5 with a 30-inch cinema display, 8 GB RAM, and a Quadro FX card? Gee, thanks guys, you’re the best.

  4. Seriously though, I hope his bad mouthing of Apple was worth it. How many people read his words stating Apple makes junk and their customer service is terrible, and how many of those will read that they gave him a brand new machine which was even better than the first?

  5. Hello,
    My name is Bill and I am absolutely sick about the way my computer has been behaving. It’s hard to use and confusing. Please send me a new Macintosh since the Dell I’ve been using doesn’t work anymore.

  6. Hahaha – Yep. Edgar choked. Too bad he didn’t take his subordinate seriously. Much like how (he ranted) AppleCare neglected his complaints.

    Still, Mark Shepherd is missed more than Edgar. What with his “Very fine hat” and all – oops. Different show!

  7. Well done MDN.

    Now, about that SE/30 in my spare room… still works fine, but the floppy drive is a bit sticky.

    Do you think MDN could help me with a replacement?!

    Oh yes, and there’s a Powerbook 145b in there too, but it’s only got a mono screen… ” width=”19″ height=”19″ alt=”cool smile” style=”border:0;” />
