Just bought my new Macbook pro. Beside that I really think I will love it, I alroundy found a bad pixel in the middle of the screen. What does the Apple Warranty about that?

Please tell me I don't have to live with that!

Take it back. They will observe it, and if they deem it to be a defect they will repair/replace it for you. You should be fine.

Thanks for advices, just brought it back! I was just a bitt worried because some computer manufacturers say there have to be more than five bad pixels connected to make a warranty issue, not so apple...
