    So it turns out i've got +-10 dead pixels on my screen. Took it back to the store, and they're fixing it under warranty... sweet.

    The only reason why i'm pointing this out is... I looked at how much it'd have cost me if I were out of warranty, or didn't buy Applecare: $640 CDN.

    :rofl: awesome. my warranty has already paid for itself. :big grin:

    My warranty did the same. I had one stuck pixel and the store gave me a brand new MBP because it was so new.

    Fuck you, I had the same problem, and they still won't fix it. One stuck pixel right from the start, I keep on getting all this bullshit.

    I'm hoping something goes wrong with my LCD so I can just get it replaced. Its really pissing me off, its like dead center, but like 3 inches to the top of the screen.

    I tried all of that, it is stuck (its like whiteish) so as of now I'm just kind of waiting to see if it fixes itself.

    The widget didn't work for me. The Apple store was really helpful and willing to go out of their way to help me. Sorry if you didn't have the same experience :(.
