    Hi,
    i have a problem with my macbook air 13 2015. There are several brighter pixels in the middle of display, especially around the apple logo. Do you think that i can demand repair or replace at seller ? What do you think about that.
    Thanks

    Those are usually caused by pressure from outside the case. Take a picture of the lid and see if there are any depressions/dents in the casing.

    If you are referring to the blurry, light area - roughly the outline of the Apple icon on the lid - that's what you have.
    It's pressure damage, probably the result of something heavy laying on top of your closed MBAir.
    Pressure on the lid won't always leave evidence of that pressure on the outside of the lid, but the display panel is more fragile than the lid.
    You can try "demanding a repair or replace", if you have AppleCare extended warranty.
    You're somewhere in EU, I guess? You may have up to 2 years, I understand.
    So, try your Apple store. It's likely you have accidental damage, so not likely it would be a warranty repair.
