    Got the rMBP about two weeks to the day. I noticed a bright white spot when playing D3 almost in center of the screen. What are the chances of getting in replaced. Or is there any open source software I can try to unstuck the pixel.

    Thanks,

    Chris

    Make sure you have flash installed go to this website below make it fullscreen, turn off screen savers/power management etc and let it run for a good 20 mins.

    saw something that maybe 80 percent of stuck pixels can be resolve with this type application.. I give it a try and see what happens.. Wont know until I get home tonight to see if it works..

    thanks,

    Does Apple have a no questions asked return policy for first two weeks of ownership?

    I not too much of a complainer but when get retina display and one best part is the display and any dark setting game/picture this is a stuck pixel which is bright white.. you see it all the time.. And just off center and in middle of the display you see it all the time notice you know it is there.

    I prefer if had choice, just to have a die pixel.. I don't think I even notice that..

    now if a pixel is (white) when it is black on the screen or black when white on the screen is that a stuck or dead pixel?

    White is not dead but black is.
