    Sorry, I don't know how to describe it. I can't take a picture either. I just noticed a sorta spot on my MacBook. Like when you touch it that it leaves a bit of a mark. At first I thought that was just it, but it won't come off with anything. Sorry if I'm not being too specific, it's just really hard to describe. Has this happened to anyone? It's not a dead-pixel, does a blur-pixel exist? :(

    Is it a small chip or microscratch?

    Users of Apple's screens have had smudges in the screen from humidity coming into the screen enclosure, though this is more a problem with the 24" iMac and Cinema display.

    found a magnifying glass (small). maybe it's a small dent in the glass. in that case what do i do? its a brand new macbook (got it like 1-2 month ago). do i wipe it / take to :apple:?

    also, i dont think mirror + iSight would work out too well. it's in the bottom of the screen. ill keep trying to get a pic though. i cant get my cam to focus so up close

    ok i got a better view of it by turning off my screen. still no pic, it just wont come out. so i guess i should take it to apple since it's not a dead pixel. does anyone know if screen repairs are covered in the warranty that came with the macbook?

    Should be, Apple Care covers everything except accidental damage.

    The default one is Apple Care. You purchase extended Apple Care for another 2 years.
