    There were hefty posting on http://macfixit.com about white spots on the LCD of new AlPBs. Unfortunately, you can only read them now if you're a subscriber. Some indicators were 3rd party RAM, but contacting Apple was the best step.

    If it's less than 10 days you can return it as DOA. A friend of mine had the same white spots on a new PB and sent it back to Apple today.

    send it back. It's defective, and you don't have to pay for that. They'll send you a new one.
