    Hi,

    Just discovered a scratch (I think) on my 15" MBP; it's hi-res anti-glare. Now every time I use the laptop my eyes instantly land on this tiny scratch.


    Any solutions to this? This is my first screen to get scratched. I can't live with it! I'm actually thinking of selling the damn thing.

    Stupid question but have you tried cleaning it? or using your fingernail to scrape it off? Kinda looks like dirt

    On an old thinkpad a cluster of dead pixels developed just off centre of the screen. They were light grey and showed up whenever there was white. Eventually I just got used to them.

    As far as I can see, you can either get used to it, go insane, or shell out $$$ for a new screen. :D

    It won't scrape off. Seems to be a scratch :(

    Or just get rid of it. Some people don't mind such a tiny scratch. It's only visible with light color or white background.

    Could it be dust under the glass?

    I had this a few times on my 2008 MBP and they replaced the screen for free.
