1 week old 13,3" MBA with defective screen

I just got my 13,3" MBA ultimate this monday (14 feb). It's a very nice computer, and I'm very happy with it. But today I just noticed a spot on the screen, which is brighter then the rest of the screen.

Should I just call Apple monday and get them to replace it? The problem is that I really can't wait 14 days again since I need the computer every day at college.

What to do?
Soon: MacBook Air 2,13 Ghz - 4 GB DDR3 Ram - 256GB SSD, MacBook White 2,2 C2D - 2 GB DDR2 Ram - 120GB HDD, iPhone 4 32GB, iPad 64GB + 3G

Sounds like you have a "stuck pixel". If so, before taking it back to Apple try Googling for ways to get it unstuck yourself—there are ways to do it, or at least try without harming your screen.

If that doesn't work, I'd take it back and exchange it. You don't have to
learn to live with it.

If you can't wait 14 days, then are you willing to drive to apple store and exchange it?
