The grey blotches are a reasonably common thing, have a quick google around and you'll see just how common.

I had the problem on mine. The 'genius' insisted it was caused by condensation. As the fault occurs withing the build of the sealed LCD panel it's far more likely to be a manufacturing fault. But the LCD panel was changed under the warranty so I didn't argue.

You can try cleaning the front panel. It's poly-carbonate rather than glass and is flexible. A suction cup takes it off no problem. Have a look at iFixit if you want to try it.

External hard disk acquisition addict - but admitting the problem is the first step to a robust backup
