Just got my first Mac ever on Tuesday..a 2.4ghz glossy MBP. Very pleased with it but noticed on the second day that it has a dead pixel about 3.5 inches up and 2 inches to the left from the lower right corner. This is my third laptop i've owned in my lifetime and also the most expensive by nearly $1000 so it really makes me uneasy that this is the only one to have a dead pixel. Other than that..this MPB doesnt have any of the other issues like warping of the top case or lower 1/3 yellowing. Now my question is, what are fellow MPB owners on this board doing about dead pixels. Living with it or calling up Apple? I've read on this board that Apple does replace computers due to one dead pixel with enough persistence. I'm really unsure right now what to do as I realize that a replacement could have an issue that bugs me far worse like a yellow lower 1/3 of the screen. Also, I notice that if i'm listening to itunes and pause the song or after I close the program there is a static sound for about 30 seconds afterward. Is this an inherent issue?
