    Hey guys i have the new unibody white macbook. And sometimes when i am viewing pictures, there is a spot on the pic that looks like the screen would be broken (sorry i dont know how to explain this). This happens alot on almost every site sometimes though. Here is an example If you guys could please help me on this it would be great. You can see in the bottom pic what is wrong and it can look much worse on other pics like a bunch of little squares too.

    Thanks again

    Nick

    If you can take a screenshot of it, then it's a software problem.

    You're well within your warranty period, how come you haven't called Apple about the issue, or gone to an Apple store for help?

    !. I have no idea what your showing.
    2. Have to uploaded any pictures from a camera or other source to see if it is the screen or not? This may tell you if it is the internet or not...
    3. Did you calibrate your monitor?
    4. If the pics from another source is the same as the internet, then make an appointment at the GB and have them check it out for you.

    If screen capture is capturing the rendering issue it's something software related. How could software "capture" a hardware related issue???

    Try re-installing OS X after backing everything up. If you don't think you can do it, go talk to the Genius bar and see what they say.

    It's a software issue it would appear. Defect is a very broad word.
