Just wanted to get your thoughts on this. I have a 2009 iMac (check specs below), and I was in ical and noticed this in the TOP RIGHT CORNER:



I upped the contrast and definition a little, but it is very visible under normal viewing (it's just not easy to get a picture of a screen).

I tried cleaning it but it did nothing which leads me to believe it is under the screen.

Do you mind take off the glass panel to clean it?

You need a suction cup, can of compassed air, a large microfiber cloth plus some latex gloves.

It is not to difficult, and I don't think it should void any warranty.

I have Applecare on it, so I think I would rather take it to Apple. So it sounds like it is dust then.

Each to his own, I'd spend 5 mins clean it myself than drag it to my local apple store and lose half a day. Unless there is problem with the screen.

Hopefully Apple staff can clean it for you there and than, and it will give you time to play around with the all the newly released hardware.
