    Hi guys,

    I just recently bought a new MacBook Air and everything has been fine. As with my other Apple devices, I've been extremely careful in handling it.

    A few days ago I noticed a clear spot in the screen of my MBA, which is clearly visible on light backgrounds, and nearly invisible on dark backgrounds. It doesn't seem to be a burned pixel, though.

    Do you guys think warranty covers it?

    If it's consistently there, take it back & get it replaced. A brand new machine needs to be perfect.

    I bought it in July. Do you think they'll repar it for free?

    They should. It is still under warranty. Just be polite and you will be fine. Don't worry.

    looks like a small pressure spot, usually caused by an LCD screen getting knocked. I'd try asking them to replace the screen.

    Any update regarding the spot.

    Did you get your MacBook replaced ?
    Also , is there any chance that the spot might spread or increase in intensity in the future ?

    I had a similar issue and they will definitely replace the screen under warranty. They replaced mine. I think it is a fairly common issue. My new screen has since developed the same issue (around the apple cut out) but I'll wait this time to replace because I use a matte screen protector and I had to buy a new one the last time they replaced my screen.

    Definitely makes applecare worth it though.

    I had one in the lower right of my Air's screen and they replaced the entire screen/clamshell without hesitation.
