    Ok, i'm getting worried now, i've got 2 white dots that have progressively got worse since i got my pb in october...

    Slight white dots in bottom corners of my screen. Anyone else having this sorta problem? Is it worth me ringing Apple?

    YES! i have one and it's driving me nuts, getting worse too. got my 12" in May.

    i wonder if these are the same spots owners of new 15" AluBooks are complaining about.

    I thought this problem doesn't happen with 12", just the 15"... at least I've never heard of it happen with the 12. Hmm.

    I may just be a problem with dead pixels, check out this thread.

    nope not dead or stuck pixels, its not pure white just like the backlight is stronger there if u know what i mean... It does sound like the 15" problem, i might of had it from day one but i've only noticed recently.

    Did you manage to sort the problem with the pixels out? I have a friend with the same thing happening to his 15".
