    Hi Guys!

    I was one of the first to purchase the 2012 imac on November 30th. Lately I've been noticing small amounts of light bleed on the corners of my screen (during dark cutscenes playing Heart of the Swarm :). It's worse on the bottom two corners.

    I've seen light bleed threads before where people have a huge amount of light bleed and return them. Mine isn't that bad but I was wondering if this is normal for the IPS displays that apple uses? Does everyone out there have a bit? Should I consider returning mine?

    It depends on what you mean by "light bleed". If you mean some extra "glowing" or more light intensity in the corners of the screen, then that is normal. Pretty much everyone AFAIK will have this to some degree.
