Hey guys, I recently just got a Macbook Pro after being without a mac for about 6 months! After receiving it on Thursday, i played with it and installed all the mandatory applications. It wasn't until Friday that i got around to checking for dead pixels. Unfortunately i found what i thought was a dead pixel at the time. A quick call to Apple (i bought my MBP off their Online store) and they told me that 1 dead pixel is not eligible for a replacement as its considered acceptable. Then, i took a few macro shots of it and realised that it wasn't actually a dead pixel as such, but an anomaly covering a few pixels. I called them up today (a Saturday) and unfortunately the department i needed doesn't operate today so i was recommended to visit a Genius Bar. Here's the macro shot in particular. I took my MBP and photos in and the chap there said that it is considered as a single pixel anomaly (dead pixel) and that they couldn't do anything about it anyway as i didn't purchase it from their store. He told me to call Apple support! Finally! I did a bit more reading and found that a lot of you folk have the same problem, but its known as dust here. Out came my trusty flashlight and i indeed confirmed that it is dust, a long with several other specs, but only one was visible against the backlight of the screen. So, here comes the question. Do you guys think i can call Apple and get them to send out a replacement? This MBP is only 4-5 days old at the moment and unfortunately the spec if dust is just too noticable otherwise i wouldn't bother. Or, do you think i could take it into the Apple store's Genius Bar and they will replace it on the spot? I've heard of people getting replacements from them, but i'm in Australia. Hopefully dust is an easy problem to fix! Sorry for my mini rant/questions. Would love any input or suggestions as to what i can do now. Thanks!
