comment Do any window managers allow me to snap windows to the sides of the display?
It seems weird that there's no free alternative, but this was worth the cost. I really only use 'Full Screen' and 'Next Monitor', but it's worth it.

comment How do I eject the Time Machine backup drive automatically after each backup?
If I remember, I'll try to rig this up and test it when I get home tonight (and try to enforce waiting for the backup to finish before ejecting).

comment How common are stuck or dead pixels on the MacBook Pro?
One solution if your stuck pixel is within acceptable limits is to find a good Apple Authorized Repair shop in your area. These people are authorized to do repairs for free under Applecare, and can use some degree of discretion in doing so. Some will go strictly by the book, but some will get things like this repaired despite it being inside acceptable limits.

Well, it sucks, but statistically speaking, there are going to be people who get a few bum laptops in a row. As for the warranties, sounds like you've got a good thing going down there. Here, if your screen dies on a macbook pro out of warranty, it'll cost more to fix it than to replace the laptop- Applecare at $300 for an additional 2 years is a pretty good deal.
