    My now 8 months old macbook unibody (6,1) has a line missing in the lcd panel. Will apple replace it?
    I really think it's a display issue. I've done the usuall supects (pram,reformat,repair premissions and everything).
    And sometimes I get white boxes in the screen, but it passes the hardware test.

    I've posted an screenshot with the line that's missing painted in red.
    Edit: An screenshot of the mystery white box
    Edit2: Found out what is the problem of the lcd, it's one of that two polarizing filters that has fallen a little. Still not sure if apple will cover it:(

    apple will definitely fix it free of charge as long as there's no damage to the exterior ( aka you didn't drop it )

    There's no damage at all. (Never dropped it)
    But my bottom also as started falling apart since it got overheating in the last few days (a smc reset did the trick)
    but the bottom obviuosly didn't reset itself to the original condition:(
