    I am experiencing a "hotspot" in the bottom right portion of my MBA screen (early 2014) and need to make time to take to the apple store. (See picture below) The issue is similar to dead pixels however the pixels are white and not red/green (typical dead pixel color) so I'm not sure if this would be classified as the same. With that said, i'm curious what kind of time frame others have experienced when Apple had to replace the screen. I have applecare if that matters in regards to turnaround time.

    Could be a matter of days depending if your store has the parts on-hand and who's ahead of you. If you have to send your MBA to Apple might be two weeks!

    I'd call Apple NOW to see your options.
