    Little Black dots? Could they be dead pixels?

    Possibly... I'm running a pixel fix video right now... are they dangerous to the screen?

    Do they look like this? I've gotten them TWICE on two different screens. Both were classified as pixel anomalies and they swapped out the screen for me. Doesn't look like it has anything to do with the pixel but something BEHIND the pixel, like LCD leakage or something.

    Then the pixel fix thingys won't work. You could bring it in and let a genius take a look at it. More will appear over time, lol.

    On mine!!!

    I noticed that I have it on mine after the second day of use; the EXACT same dot which seems to be in the EXACT same area!! However, I did not notice it until after I had accidentally sneezed, thinking that I had covered my mouth fully when I noticed I had minor spit particles on the screen. I gently wiped it off with the cloth that came with the MBP. It looks like it condensated into the LCD; just my opinion because it wasnt on there before. Anyone came up with the cure yet??
