Ok so i bought the MacBook Pro in the summer time.. and it seems as though i may have two dead pixels on my screen.. or at least i think they are dead pixels. they are two separate black dots on the inside of my screen....
what can i do?

is it an easy stop at the Apple store fix for free or what?
completly clueless

I've treated this Mac as its my first one i bought like a baby.
what to do?

I don't know how true it is, buy I've read that Apple won't do anything unless it's at least like 5 pixels.
If it's still under warranty though, I'd try to take it back and see what they say. The geniuses are usually very nice and will fix a lot of stuff. (This will probably require replacing the top half of the computer)

the best thing you can do is make an appointment at an Apple store, and let someone look at it first-hand.

as previously mentioned, it is not uncommon for LCD manufacturers to claim that a few dead (or stuck) pixels are within acceptable tolerances.
