    Well when i turn my screen off then i get a clearly visible 'thing' on my screen. The reason why i call it a 'thing' is because i have no idea what it is and how it got there...

    Can't i be something 'pitched' my screen and the back ledscreen cracked? Because i dont think dust can get behind the glass... both the behind screen and the glass have this "thing". It's luckily not big, maby 2 mm2

    I got applecare so i guess apple will fix this for me? right? But it is kinda silly that ill have to lose my macbook for 3 weeks just for that little thing, but ill have to because i can't clean it myself i guess.

    I tried taking some pictures but i cant seem to take a good shot, sorry.

    So what do you guys/girls think this can be and is there any way me myself can fix this or do i have to take it to apple?

    PS: Anyone know if applestores in the Netherlands give replacements? Im taking it to ifactors.

    Welcome to Apple, where build quality goes down and the price goes up!

    If you complain a lot, they may expedite it.

    Yeah my iMac doesn't take CDs anymore :mad:

    Anyway if your MBP is still under warranty take it into the Apple Store.

    Would it be better to take it to a store or to mail it to AppleCare?

    I have a collection of specs in the middle, and whilst other people might be able to live with happily I cannot. I just fear that if I was to take it in they would either tell me to live with it or say it's not enough to justify a repair. (I bought AppleCare a few days ago so have another two years coverage)
