So I just got a new Macbook Air and after a couple minutes of playing around with it I started to notice these really thin gray lines running along the dock area. They seem to fade out the higher you go on the screen. They are further apart than a pixel so isnt just some natural screen door effect. They are even noticeable from a few feet away.

Is this common issue or are the geniuses gonna look at me like Im crazy when I take it in later this week? Has anyone else noticed this on theirs?

Very disappointed.

Thanks in advance.

I have not noticed anything like that on my Air, but I think others have noticed something similar. If I did notice something like that, I would be inclined to bring it in to have it looked at...

Hope everything works out for you...

I noticed this on my 2nd generation air, but not the first 11" air.

Is this similar to your issue?

Definitely not crazy. I'm experiencing the same problem and it's really disturbing. I hope my Apple reseller won't tell me to sod off.
