    Hi,

    After browsing in full-screen Safari I noticed, that the bottom part of the Mac's screen is a bit darker, looks like a shadow. Its noticeable especially on white background. Its not a big part of the screen that is affected (1 - 2mm), so I'm wondering whether I should exchange it, or is it a common problem and i shouldn't worry?

    The bottom of my screen is not darker as far as I can tell. How much darker is it and have you checked if it is related to 'backlight bleeding'?

    Look at the screen while it is black in a completely dark room and check if there are lighter areas around the edges, here especially at the bottom. If the 'shadow' is uniform across the bottom then it might just be slightly bent.

    If you find it unacceptable, you might have to return/exchange it.
