when I bought my iBook way back when and realized I had a stuck pixel I was so distraught. I couldn't believe apple wouldn't replace it the next day. At any rate, the time has come for a new laptop and I would like to avoid this issue. Will they check out the laptop before you leave the store( is there any solutions for a new buyer?
Also, does anyone have a link to a good website that tests the pixels?

I think dead pixels are less of a problem these days, now that LCDs are so much more mass-produced.
Even still, if you're worried about it, I'd just ask to see the unit you're buying before you buy it. Then, pop a utility like this onto a flash drive and run it on the machine.Liquid and computers don't mix. It might seem simple, but we see an incredible amount of people post here about spills. Keep drinks and other liquids away from your expensive electronics!
