My new MBP has a dead pixel. But since it is a custom configured one (hi-res anti-glare screen, and 7200 RPM hard drive), I doubt the local Apple store will have any in stock that I can exchange with. Also, I bought it with a credit card that was offering 10% cashback a couple weeks ago, so I don't want to just return it and buy a new one. If I did that, I'd lose out on the 10% cashback. So I'm wondering if I can order second MBP which hopefully won't have any problems, and then I'll return the first MBP under the second order. If Apple doesn't check serial numbers, then I'll be able to do that. If they do check serial numbers, then I won't be able to do that. So does anyone know if they check serial numbers on returns?
