So, this thread is to find statistics for people on this forums who bought a MBP in the past year or so and discovered dead pixels. Time to see if the hardware on these notebooks are truly reliable, and if it's up to expectations as far as performance. Did your MBP have dead pixels when you bought it? If so, and you bought online from the Apple website, how did you return it? Is it possible to take a customized notebook and exchange it at an Apple store or did you have to ship it out? Time to investigate!
