Anyone else with 'black spots' around the screen bezel?

    This is a minor complaint admittedly, but on a certain spot at the top of the bezel around my screen (just below and left of the camera) I have a black 'spot'. Every couple of days I wipe it away and it returns somehow! The only thing I can think is that maybe something is leaking from the trackpad (ie. from the inside of the machine but via the gap around the trackpad).

    The machine is otherwise perfect, so I don't imagine there's anything seriously wrong inside... just annoys me! :D

    Anyone else? Thoughts on what it might be??

    This thread is useless without pictures. (Seriously, can you post a picture of the spot?)

    I've rubbed it off, but will see if I can capture when it reappears.

    Yes, I have the same black dot... actually it's more like a small black smear and it matches another black smear coming out of the trackpad button. It's been there from day 2. Sorry that I can't post a photo. I'm on the road with no camera.

    Sounds the same, except I can see nothing on or near the trackpad. Do you think it's anything to worry about?
