Would you replace this 27" iMac?

Earlier this week I received my new iMac 27" and immediately saw this 'Bo' cosmetic mark on my display. It is only visible on a dark background but would you guys exchange this? I also have slight backlight bleeding, yellow tint, and slow Fusion write speeds as well.

The picture is upside down and I can't remove this with any cleaning cloths/materials, since it is engraved behind the front panel. Also, the mark is nearly dead center middle to the right, making it unbearable.

You literally said it is unbearable. Why are you questioning getting a replacement?

So its unbearable but you're questioning about exchanging? Am I missing something here?
