Just noticed one today on my rMBP. I have applecare, just wondering if they would replace for a dead pixel if it is noticeable, or if I would be wasting my time trying?

I ordered it like 3 days after launch, pretty sure I am out of the return window.
I recall reading in macrumors somewhere that it usually takes 3 or 4 pixels before they replace. I don't know if that holds true for the retina but then again you can argue that its pixel double. Best bet is to make an appointment and see what the Genius say.

Thanks for the advice guys. I will take it in.
A friend replaced his rMBP after 2 months because of a single dead pixel. He called the AppleCare and told them there were 7 dead pixels right in the middle of the screen.

They replaced it just fine.

He called and shipped it to them? Or took it to a store? Mine was BTO.
