    1) Is there a way to clean out the dirt/dust that has fallen through the holes in my speakers?

    2) I have a few dead pixels that are just black.. I have apple care and there is no damage to my screen at all. They are not scratches or anything I have inflicted.

    3) My screen can no longer stay half way shut, it doesn't hold itself up anymore, it will just fall once it gets to about halfway, can Apple fix this?

    4) A screw at the bottom of my MBP is missing, wtf!

    The title is misleading, you only have 2 questions, the other points are simply statements of fact. :p

    I don't know the answer to your only question other than to take it apart and get a blower and shoot compressed air into the speaker grills.

    Dead pixels tend not to be covered uneless there is a few in the same area.

    you could try a vaccum cleaner to see if you can get some of the dust out but otherwise you'll have to open the machine

    whats the question? if you wonder if apple will replace your screen, you'll have to talk to them and see, it seems the policy on dead pixels is flexible and depend alot on the position of the bad pixels

    i suppose so, this is not normal

    **** happens! i'm sure apple will put a new screw if you ask them too.

    Open up the machine?!! Without trying to sound arsey that's really extreme just to get dust out!

    As said, an air duster does the job fine (high pressured air coming out).

    Can see the end of the Earth from here

    1.) Canned air.

    2.) Apple has a policy regarding replacement of displays for bad pixels. I don't recall what it is, but if you look around on their Web site you'll find it. It addresses a specific percentage of failed pixels must be present before they consider replacement.

    3.) Hinge tension adjustment.

    4.) Careful - if it's under warranty, they might suspect you have opened the case. Interestingly enough, when I recently repllaced my hard drive and AirPort card, I found thread locking compound (LocTite) on every screw in the case. Maybe there is an issue with screws falling out.
