    Hello everyone!

    I am going to buy my first apple computer ever, when they release the haswell rMBP, pretty excited about that. I've been reading alot about the old generation retina macbook pro (pro's and cons) and I got some concern

    youtube video

    Found some topics about this problem (watch youtube link above).. What I understand is that some small sand particles or debris on your keyboard can cause some "dots" in your screen when you close the lid, ending up like you have a dead pixel..

    Are there more people here that experienced this? Any advice how to prevent this from happening on my future retina device? Cause my OCD wouldnt stop noticing this :(

    Thanks ahead

    I have those little dots as well, but they are unnoticeable.

    I can only see them with the screen off and by shining a bright light onto the screen.

    If you are worry about what will might happen with your rMBP then get AppleCare. I am not sure if it will only cover scratched screen? :apple:

    AppleCare does not cover accidental damage.

    To the OP: keep the laptop clean. If there is something on the keyboard or on the screen, that's large enough to cause damage, you should see it with a quick look before you close the lid.

    The rMBP screen is IMHO not easier to scratch or damage, than any other laptop screens out there. So don't worry too much.
