i am still researching imacs and have read reviews on one thing that is troubling to me, it seems if you have a password problem it will not be solved in less than 3 days, resetting does not work and waiting for apple to fix it seems slow at best, is it really that bad, do you have to use a password

When you set up any Mac, one of the things you need to do is establish a so called "admin" account, and with that, you are required to create a password. Then, whenever you want to upgrade or install software, you will need to enter that password.

Hence, you will need to remember it.

It depends how that is set up. I myself allow my Macs to ask for my password when I boot up. This way, I never forget it.
