I've had my 12" Powerbook for nearly a year and I've got Applecare on it. My screen after a few months started to go blotchy around the centre, the affected areas were slightly lighter areas around a centimetre in diameter. Apple were more than happy to replace the panel at the same time as my hard drive failed. Anyway, got my Powerbook back really quickly and was really impressed with the service. My only problem now is the new panel has one dead pixel, glaring at me right in the face. Really distracting on dark backgrounds. I'd rather have had the slightly blotchy panel than this. I take it Applecare won't cover 1 dead pixel?
