    Am I too picky...

    When lights is out and I use a flashlight towards the screen,
    I can see marks from the laminating rollers, I presume.

    I can´t wipe it off with the cloth that came with the iMac.
    I have tried both vertically and horizontally.

    It is, as if it disappear when I wipe with circular pressure in a small area,
    but reappear later and seems as if it is behind the glass.

    I think I should give it time to adhere properly before expecting perfect screen.

    Please comment.

    UPDATE: Bought screen cleaner and polished the screen.
    It worked - probably remainings from the factory then.

    Regards Lars

    Short answer: Yes.

    Longer answer: If the image in the screen is not affected when you're looking at it, it doesn't matter. If what is on your screen is affected under your normal working conditions then it is an issue.

    I would give it some time to let the adhesive set fully.

    I heard similar stories with the iPhone 5 when it was release (similar lamination concept). After usage and time, it went away.

    Well... it´s still there - must bee antiglare coating - not possible to remove.
    Only seen with flash light close to the screen.
    Have read about same issue seen by others in this forum.
    Guess I´ll have to accept it.

    If you got an atomic force microscope, you would find that the glass has all sorts of imperfections. But of course, it has no bearing in your normal experience with the machine.

    It's not that you have to "accept" something. Unless you use your computer by shining a flashlight on it, there's no flaw you need to deal with.

    Just a little advice from someone that is OCD - never use a flashlight to look at your screen - you will only be disappointed :)
