The screen anomaly doesn't look like other dead pixels I've seen before. Does anyone know what's causing this? It's a 15" MBP, early 2011, hi-res, matt display. You can only see it on light backgrounds. enter image description here

  • Looks like dust between the top laminate and the LCD screen... – stuffe Jul 13 '12 at 14:44
  • Is that a white spot in the screen? – MrDaniel Jul 13 '12 at 14:45
  • @stuffe thanks for the response. Guess that's better than a dead pixel. – sevens Jul 13 '12 at 14:50
  • @MrDaniel yes it is. But it only show when on a light background. You can see it over dark colors. – sevens Jul 13 '12 at 14:50
  • So you can't see it when you have a dark background? – MrDaniel Jul 13 '12 at 14:58

It's likely a pressure mark where the panel has been hit by something

  • I took it to the apple store yesterday and that's what they said. They said it isn't very bad and they wouldn't expect it to get worse. – sevens Jul 14 '12 at 18:04
  • It shouldn't get any worse no. Just make sure you don't have anything on your keyboard when you close the lid :) – hellothere Jul 15 '12 at 14:35
