    Don't know where they came from, but I noticed them while gaming. Made a Genius Bar appointment.

    Anyone else?

    Have you tried one of the videos to fix the stuck pixels?

    When I powered up my rMBP for the first time, I had about 10 stuck pixels. Fortunately, I was able to very carefully massage them unstuck with my finger. They haven't resurfaced, and the display is gorgeous.

    If you just apply a little bit of pressure each stuck pixel, there's a good chance you can coax them back to life. The videos probably also work, though I don't have any experience with them.

    I've tried the massage trick, and it didn't work. Since I have nearly 3 years of AppleCare left, I feel like I might as well just take it in since I can approve or reject the replacement screen thereafter. (they have you "accept" it at the Genius Bar)

    We'll see... I mean if I didn't have AppleCare left I'd probably try the video now, but since that'll definitely take some life out of the display... I figured I'd rather trade up. Yeah?
