    So I just got a new Macbook Air and after a couple minutes of playing around with it I started to notice these really thin gray lines running along the dock area. They seem to fade out the higher you go on the screen. They are further apart than a pixel so isnt just some natural screen door effect. They are even noticeable from a few feet away.

    Is this common issue or are the geniuses gonna look at me like Im crazy when I take it in later this week? Has anyone else noticed this on theirs?

    Very disappointed.

    Thanks in advance.

    I have not noticed anything like that on my Air, but I think others have noticed something similar. If I did notice something like that, I would be inclined to bring it in to have it looked at...

    Hope everything works out for you...

    I noticed this on my 2nd generation air, but not the first 11" air.

    Definitely not crazy. I'm experiencing the same problem and it's really disturbing. I hope my Apple reseller won't tell me to sod off.
