    Not sure if it's the camera accentuating it or what, but I am seeing some in the bottom right corner, specifically along the edges. The rest of the screen is fine, otherwise.

    If it's at all noticeable during normal use, I'd exchange it for another one. Knowing how *not cheap* these things are, I know I would.

    Doesn't look to good to me. Is it only visible on the picture? If noticeable in reality with 100% brightness, I would return it for replacement.

    At the top left and low right I clearly see two pinkish spots, while the top right and low left seem a bit yellowish.

    Looks normal to me, considering that there isn't an image there.

    IPS display = backlight bleed. Unfortunately they will all do it if you turn up the brightness high enough in a dark room, or photograph it with a long enough exposure.

    The question is does it effect your day to day usage while running applications? If not, move on and enjoy your computer.
