Of course a dead pixel is going to look "quite visible" when zoomed in. Bacteria look "quite visible" when observed under a microscope as well.

Don't get me wrong...I think every customer deserves to get a display with zero dead pixels. But given the results you have had so far...and knowing that ever since computer & display manufacturers have been making flat panel displays there has been an allowance/tolerance for dead pixels (very few manufacturers have a zero dead pixel guarantee). You may have a difficult time finding a unit with zero dead pixels...ESPECIALLY on a retina display which has a heck of a lot more pixels.

Due to the retina display technology (pixel density and newness of the technology)...I wouldn't be surprised if dead pixels are much more common than on older non-retina displays.
