    I have just opened my new 24" iMac for my christmas.

    I have noticed on the screen a black mark around 5mm long.It is not physically on the glass itself as i have cleaned and cleaned and have felt absolutely nothing.

    It is not a dead pixel as I have taken a screen-shot and it does not show up.

    I am wondering if it is possible that something like a hair could have got stuck in between the glass and the LCD panel.

    Is there anything I can do to fix this, or can Apple do anything about this.

    You can remove the front plastic screen protector easily - using a couple of "sucker" pads (I used a couple from windscreen mount phone holders) and pull towards you

    The plastic front is only held on by (strong) magnets

    You can then give it a good clean

    you mean the glass thing that covers the actual LCD panel?

    Even if it was a dead pixel it would not show up in a screenshot. Since it's new I would take it back to the apple store instead of taking off the glass screen cover.

    Terrible idea. That's Apple's job, not the customer's.

    Take the machine back.
