    When I play a game or have an application running a black-fullscreen image I can see faint blue light streaking up from the bottom of my screen. The bluish light fades away after about 1 1/2 inches, but is noticeable.

    This is occurring on a 2-week-old base 13" 2011 MBP.

    Edit: Found a thread on this topic that thoroughly explains the problem. Has to do with backlight. http://forums.macrumors.com/showthread.php?t=1106571

    I take it this is normal and to be expected?

    It's called backlight bleed and all screens have this to some extent but too much of it is definitely not normal. A bit hard to say if yours is problematic without seeing it in person or next to another one.
