There is a small speck of dust under the screen. I didn't notice it until today, so it's obviously not too noticeable (though now I won't be able to un-see it ). It's a common enough issue that I'd probably run a good chance of getting another with the same problem - so I'll probably just deal with it. I always lose the Apple screen lottery, but just wondered how many other people have the same issue. My expectations are always too high on Apple stuff. I always end up disappointed. ha!
