    Hi guys have any of you experienced blotchyness around the corners of the lcd in new macbooks? I can onky describe it as a faint blob on the corner of the screen.

    i cant take a picture of it as its not visible through the camera. Basically it is a small curve at the edge of the screen kind of like the one that occurs when a magnet is placed next to a tv only it is very faint

    I would say so too. Especially if the blotches are lighter looking than the rest of the screen, i.e. they are not dark blotches. If so, I would say it's something altogether different.

    If it looks anything like this, then that is normal for MacBooks.
    I set the desktop wallpaper to be a sloid colour, then angled the screen to make the unevenness of the backlighting more pronounced (simply for the photo).

    In normal viewing/use, you won't notice this unevenness at all.
    The MacBook screen actually looks pretty damn nice :)

    hey guys it was just un-eveneness in one specific area of the screen having spoken with two engineers they both believe this was down to gases not settling in the screen and in fact after a few hours of power on time the gases have dissipated :D at last i can enjoy my mac :D
