    that sucks, but I think that with that many, applecare will fix it for you, so I would try contacting them.

    If you have 5 or more stuck or dead pixel's, you can return it to Apple and they will replace or fix it for free, if it's under the (30 or 14, i forget; maybe more) warranty.

    EDIT: Damn, beaten to it. :p

    hehe at first i thought i was one of the few lucky ones that avoided the glossy screen with the yellowish tint issue, but noooooo (one was on the top of the right and look light blackish, and one was at the right bottom look whiteish which it was not noticble unless i lower the xp's toolbar at the bottom)
    it's just like when i got the ps2 lol a very visible and clear dead pixel right at the left center of the screen

    It has happened, although it's very rare. If the Genius Bar people are complete moron's, you should probably call AppleCare and send it in.

    another question when some1 said he run the lcd screen test and the screen failed the gradient test, how can i tell?

    this picture was copied and the screen issue thread, and i saw theres a line in the green zone area does that mean if i run a test and it come back with lines like that, it means the screen is bad?

    How old is the computer? If it's close to the 14 days, you may want to take it into the genius bar as soon as possible, because sometimes sending it in, they won't recognize the date you shipped it, just the date it arrived there.
