    Powerbook 15.2" screen
    Have had the new Poweerbook for three weeks and have noticed that on white screen images (like the one I am typing on for this forum) the screen has several brighter areas. One with tiny white dots. Is this usual or shoudl I ring Apple? It's not diabolically bad - but is noticeable. Any thought?

    Mine was doing that as well, then it cracked, and I went through hell to have them replace it, but with my new screen, I don't see it all anymore.

    Display flaw angers PowerBook owners
    October 31, 2003 - 14:54 EST Hundreds of 15-inch PowerBook G4 owners are complaining about a flaw that causes white spots to appear on the laptop's LCD display. Apple said in a statement on Friday that it is looking into the problem: "The new 15-inch PowerBook has been a big hit with customers since its introduction last month. However, some customers are reporting the appearance of faint white spots on their displays after using the system for a short period of time, and Apple is investigating these reports right now. Any customers experiencing this problem should contact AppleCare." More than 650 owners have signed an online petition demanding that Apple address the issue.

    My Comments: It kind of sucks that customers had to resort to that to get Apple to listen to them
