    I just purchased a new 12" at the beginning of this school year and it has been great, however I have noticed that some pixels just will not turn black. There are 12 across the whole screen, about 5 of them are obvious, the other 7 are just darker shades of blue or green. On any other color but black they work fine, but for some reason they just can't turn black. Would Apple cover this?
    I know they only tolerate seven dead pixels or five stuck ones, but I am not sure as to how these lazy pixels would be classified. I was just wondering if anybody else has had a similar problem or experience and can point me in the right direction.

    Thanks in advance.

    Give Apple a call, that doesn't sound like something you should have to tolerate. I'd want it fixed if it was my notebook.

    That is definitely way too many lazy pixels for me to handle. Yeah, definitely get that replaced! :eek:
