    Noticed that a couple display models has dirt and dust embedded between bezel and edge of screen. Looked like scratches at first but it was just debris. Anyone seeing this?

    I had the exact same problem with my iPad mini and exchanged for a new one. The store exchanged it without asking.

    I noticed the same with mine. I figured it was a little bit of glue left over from the manufacturing process. I just scrubbed around the bezel edge with a damp cloth and it all came off/out. I m pretty sure it's glue.

    The dirt/glue was much deeper than the surface; it was actually below the surface of the glass - I doubt you could clean the ones I saw.

    yep, mine has a really thin gap on the left side between the screen and bezel... it occasionally collects dust and i have to blow it out with a blower....

    The first ipad mini i got had a loose screen on the exact same side. Everytime i pushed on the left side it will click downwards. Had to exchange that ....

    seems like ipad mini have a problem on the left size of the screen

    I am not sure if it warrants another exchange .....
