    Hello,

    I have an iMac 20'' - using it for 8 months.

    I noticed 2 dead pixels on the display. Is it normal (two)? What is an acceptable number of dead pixels?

    And maybe the most important question: is there anything to prevent dead pixels?

    Thanks.

    Apple will not replace any display without 7 dead pixels. I have one dead pixel on my MacBook, but Apple says that every single display has a dead pixel or two. There is nothing you can do to stop dead pixels, but this is OK, and there is nothing you can do.

    Re:

    I have not had one on my Imac yet and it is a few years old. It will be fine. Just hope you don't get a bunch. I have a Tv that has like 11 and it is only 1.5 year old.
