    Hello, my 2011 MBP recently started having what looks like a grey smudge mark on the screen. It is about an inch and a half wide and only shows up when the screen is displaying dark colors. Any ideas as to what this is? I've had the computer since May and this just started like yesterday (or I first noticed it then at least.) Should I take my MBP into an Apple Store?

    Here is a picture of it (taken with my iphone) though it doesn't really do it justice. [​IMG]

    Any thoughts?

    Took my Macbook in, they are going to replace the lcd screen/upper case for free, but they didn't have the parts in so I have to wait a few days. I'd see if you can call Apple and send your computer in to be fixed? I don't know the exact policy on computers outside of the US though.

    Hii, hey thats amazing :D xD!... look, unfortenly i bought my Macbook Pro on ebay, its a 2009 model so there's no warranty... the Tech support on Mexico its just... =/ bleh (they took like a month to replace a key on the keyboard... A KEY... ON THE KEYBOARD... the A letter). I dont want to fix it, because as i said, its just a tiny spot... i just wanted to know if its going to grow or something xD... or if my display is going to fade at some moment or something... :(

    Jejeje, well, its good to hear that the apple support on the US is so amazing D:!

    Never buy a computer unless it's brand new off ebay.
