    you can always return it, paying the restocking fee. or, you can take it to an apple store and hope that a genius will exchange it for another. or, you can keep it and be happy, not letting that lone pixel bother you.

    bring it back to the apple store, I certainly would not like to pay 433 bucks for a defective screen.

    It's not a defective screen. This is an inherent issue with LCD screens, but this issue has been beaten to death so whatever.

    defective; "1. having a defect or flaw; faulty; imperfect: a defective machine. "

    and wouldn't you want to return it? :D

    Although that definition may be correct, several dead pixels on a panel are not considered to be defective but normal.

    There is even an ISO standard that covers this I believe!

    Again this has been beaten to death everywhere!

    I just sent mine in through Applecare for dead/stuck pixels. You could try that.
