    Hey, I just purchased my iMac 20" / 2.66Ghz / 2G RAM / 320G HD

    Now how do I check if my screen has any dead pixels or shading issues? Like if the screen is darker in corners or anything?

    I just want to make sure it's perfect, so if it isn't, I can take it back.

    Thanks again

    Perfection is literally in the eye of the beholder. If it looks fine to you then it is. You are the only acceptable critic of your machine.

    Download and run PiXel Check.

    My screen has no pixel anomalies.

    Save my two attached files (the very small white one and black one) to your desktop (or wherever you want). Open one in Quick Look and make it full screen. Check for anomalies. Repeat with the other color. You're done.
