Does anyone else have this problem?

It appears to me that there are dust specs inside my LCD screen. I don't have Apple Care but I bought my MacBook Pro about a month ago. Is it worth taking it over to Apple or is it something that they won't usually fix?

I have never had a problem with that, or seen it. I would contact apple, they are sure to do something about that. That sounds like a defect to me and if it's enough to bother you and make you put up the unhappy face it's time to call apple.

Ok, thanks.

Do you think they'd take long with this? I'm going on vacation in about a week and I'll need to take my Mac with me.

I'll call them tomorrow.

Well, you just see it there. At first I thought it would just be dust on the outside, but I wiped and it remained there. Then I looked closely, and you can see it's at a different depth, if you understand what I mean.
