Dead pixel

Picked up my 64gb 4g in white this morning. Just found my first dead pixel - yes I know it's a "retina display" but I can still see it. Hope the store still has stock

Dead pixels on a retina display are TINY. After I got my iPhone 4s, I did notice one stuck red pixel after looking really close, but then I forgot about it and never noticed it since.

Got one on mine as well. I'm gonna wait a few days before bringing it in.

While it is small, it is still quite obvious and looks like a piece of dust on the screen.

I had some dead pixels on mine. Took it back to the Apple Store. I then checked out the display while I was there, and saw nothing wrong. Then I got home and noticed a white hotspot. Probably going to wait a day or two before I return this one.

Here is mine, it is in the top right in landscape. Mainly annoying to me because I obsessively keep my iPad screen clean, and have already tried to wipe it off multiple times.

You know what's making my day? The fact that Apple came out with basically the same product with a "better display". I've never owned an iPad but with the new one out, I might end up with one. There are a gazillion used iPad 2s for sale now because all the Apple fans think they have to have the latest and "greatest". Might pick up a cheap one "just because".
