Well, I've had my laptop for about 6 weeks, and I just got my first dead pixel. It's a little black dot on the screen. I already tried massaging it and all that jazz, no luck. I'm not too pissed because I know these things happen on LCD's. As long as I don't have a cluster of them in one spot!

Ive had my powerbook for 14 months....had one dead pixel that I was able to get to work again.

i tried the massaging which didn't do anything
Then i cleaned off the screen with a moist paper towel and it worked again

I think I have one blue colored pixel if you look really hard, you can't really notice it though. But my screen is like 3 months old. I guess I'm lucky?
