    hey everyone, my 2010 13" MBP is about 1yr old.. i still have a couple of weeks to purchase applecare and I think i'm going to pull the trigger, but if I don't I have an issue I want to resolve first

    i hope i'm not being anal here, but in the past month it started off as a small black dot on my LCD, and it seems to get bigger..

    its only on some colors that it's noticeable / more noticeable / not noticeable, and only at certain angles (sometimes when i'm laying in bed watching a movie it's really noticeable and bothers me)

    would apple fix this? what do I even say the problem is?

    here is a picture :

    it's in the lower right of the screen

    It's hard to tell from the picture, but if it's a dead pixel and you have time left on your initial 1 year of Apple Care I would take it in and see what they can do. It would stink looking at a dead pixel everyday. I couldn't do it either.

    Looks like more than a dead pixel to me...

    Looks like a backlight issue to me or some other compression issue on the LCD glass panel itself, are there any dents in the lid near that corner?
