My 6 month old mbp has developed a dead pixel. While I was inspecting it I noticed that I have 8+ pixels that are stuck in addition to the very noticeable dead one. I'm trying a pixel program, but so far no luck. My questions are: Is this covered under applecare? I know people have exchanged macs with this number of pixels, but they did it just after purchase. Second, how did this happen? I'm pretty sure that I would have noticed these pixels earlier. I haven't had the mbp out of the house and it hasn't been bumped around. The only thing that I can think of would be if the cat was walking on it while I was out of the house. Anyway, any advice would be appreciated.
