    I just noticed this but there seems to be a small dent in my screen. I thought it was a dead pixel but when I touched it the matte film seems to have a dent in it. It creates a prismatic effect because it's not the screen but the film instead. It's pretty small but I notice it every once in a while. I already had my screen replaced because it was misaligned and now this happened. Should I get it looked at or just stay with it? Thanks guys.

    You're still under warranty so I would definitely have it checked out.

    I probably will once I do some work on my MBP this weekend.

    The dent is literally the size of a pinhead. I can't even take a picture of it.

    It may be just a scratch. Take it in, and see if they can replace the display assembly.

    It's definitely a little dent. It's about the size of a pixel and when I put my nail over it, it goes in then gets caught in the dent.

    Then take it back.

    Steve's exact words: "If you don't like it take it back"

    What is there to debate or discuss here?

    Sure it could have. You can chip glass with out it shattering. It could be a manufacturing defect.
