well, i have the late 2008 aluminum macbooks. when i started up, there was always a thing but long colorless line on my screen. i didn't think much of it, as it was only visible in light blue and black backgrounds. with all the reports that apple updated the screens in april, is it really absurd for me to get a replacement? i mean, it didn't bother me before. it's not like i'm edging for a new screen ,i just would prefer a working display.
