    My most recent rmbp developed stuck pixel clusters after 2 months and took it in and got a replacement. You paid premium for your laptop, you deserve premium product. Take it in. They shouldn't give you trouble in replacing the display once you can show them the dead pixel.

    I have the same issue. I took mine in today, and the Genius wouldn't help me, I guess there is a minimum amount of pixels gone bad before it can be replaced. He did suggest to call apple care and see if they'd help out.

    Not unreasonable, as any amount of dead pixels is unacceptable, not to mention it could get worse.
