    So I just found a dead pixel in the middle of my screen when I was cleaning and it wouldn't wipe off ;) While I'm not going crazy over how annoying it is (no one else but me would notice) it is a bit lame that my aluminum macbook i got in may already has one. I guess my question is, is this indicative of more dead pixels to come? How many do you have to have for apple to fix it? I don't feel the need to bring it in now and wait a few days to get it fixed but if I eventually decide I want it corrected, will the replace the screen? I've read there has to be a number of dead pixels to be fixed but my friend who used to work at an apple store (not in the genius bar) says he thinks they'd fix it.

    Suggestions?

    if you have dead pixels, one is more than enough for them to fix it IMO, its your money, if your willing to spend the cash and live with it, good luck but i wouldnt wait to do something about it.. i would be at apple store before posting, thats just me,..
