    I appear to have a piece of dust behind the black bezel on my aluminium MacBook, is this even possible?
    I've heard of dust behind the screen but not behind the bezel before.
    It has been there pretty much since I got in October and I thought it was a chip that I caused, but I've noticed you cannot feel it at all and it definitely appears to be behind the glass.
    I'm just curious as to what it would be.

    Sounds like it's dust/chipped paint from behind.

    Yes it's possible. Happened on the screen of two of my Aluminium MacBooks.

    oh right
    there's no chance of a replacement is there? :rolleyes:
    that would be extremely picky, but there is a few annoying things such as slanted keys and a bigger gap on the left hand side when the lids closed so I wouldnt mind a new one :p

    Additionally...

    Dust under the bezel can sometimes take the form of what looks like a hyper pixel. It may seem like a tiny pixel sized spot which is all rainbowy. The display on my Blackberry is a lot tighter than the display on my Mac, that being said, even the BB managed to get dust in there :p
