    Yes and no, usually a single dead pixel is not enough

    Are you talking about a new iMac? Simply take it back and tell them youre not happy with it.

    F' That! You paid over $2K for a computer, I'd be exchanging it. If they give you a hard time, tell them you'll just return it and re buy it LOL.

    Oh I thought you meant a new 2012 iMac. If you have Applecare I'd try to either ship it to them or take it to the Apple store to get it repaired. Otherwise, looks like your just gonna have to live with it. Should have spoke up within your return window.
