Hi hows it going? I bought the new mac from the apple store a couple of days ago but I dont know what I should do. The first time I bought the mac and I took it home there was a dead pixel on the bottom of the screen very noticeable but I returned it and it wasnt a big deal they gave me no problems.

But on my 2nd laptop, there is something else it isnt a dead pixel but its like a veryyyyyyyyyy tiny grey dot on the screen that I have I can only see if it if I look for it on a white background. I also have what appears to be like a tiny dust particle behind the screen somewhere else that I can only see when the screen is black.

Im trying to decide if I should exchange it again or return it or its not a big deal that its ok to have some perfections on an LCD. What do you think?

I have a friend who works in computers he said he would laugh if he saw me take something like that back in... I was thinking of going to the apple store and looking at their demos to see if it had any imperfections maybe Id see if its normal?

QUOTE Thanks

I have dirt and dust between on my pro and this seems to be common but that doesn't make it right. I have a new replacement coming soon but it will be confirmed on Monday.

Apple are pricey and seem to have this as an issue in the new books (better than a deadly one). You paid for a nice laptop and you should have one that is free from imperfections. That is what I did and will do again if the next one is the same.

This is the problem of buying the first gen.
