I bought my MacBook Pro 2017, brand new, about 1 year ago. (I have about 3 weeks left on the warranty). I love almost everything about it, except for the screen, which now has over a dozen little sand "dents" in it. I couldn't believe this screen would be so sensitive. These dents are not removable with a little wiping, and it was rather... heartbreaking for something so expensive.
I don't have AppleCare, but I can still buy it... but $170 + $49 for an "accident"? I would really really expect this to be under warranty, but I can't get to an Apple Store anytime soon. I tried (once) chatting with Apple and the agent suggesting shipping it in, but would not assure me that it was under warranty, which freaked me out because I am not going to pay several hundred bucks for a remote repair if it turns out to not be under warranty. What, do you think, is the best course of action?
Finally... I assume this is normal, but the top doesn't appear to be glass. It looks like a sort of plastic "liquid" that's now solid. No glass as far as I can tell. I just assumed that is how it should be.
It is hard to photograph, but much more obvious in real life.
