    Hey guys,
    I'm using the MacBook Pro 15-inch late 2016 for about three month. The version of the operating system I'm currently using is macOS Sierra 10.12.4. Recently, I found several reflective spots on the left side of the escape key (just as the circle I marked in the picture attached shows). The spots are on the black area (the leftmost area) of touch bar which it won't lighten up as the touch panel. Though it didn't cause any malfunction of touch bar so far, this strange reflective spots annoy and confuse me a lot. Can anyone tell me what cause this problem?Am I the only one who has this problem? Please help me! Thanks a lot! IMG_6379.JPG

    It's on the inside I suppose? Than it's definitely a manufacturing defect and even though it's only optical it shouldn't be there. Bring it to the Apple Store if you think it's worth the trouble.

    That looks more like stuck pixels than reflection. Which is indeed a manufacturing defect.

    There are no pixels there, look closely and you see where the screen ends.

    Ah, I think I see what you mean. Very odd to have reflections like that.

    Looks like there's room for a physical escape key there!
