Hi everyone,

 

I just bought my second defective 13 inch Macbook Air. Oh how fun. Anyhow must not complain too much otherwise the Apple people will remove this post too. Only this is not a Rant Apple I have questions.

 

Question (1)  What do I do with a new 13 inch Macbook Air 256 GB, 4GB ram that has developed Ugly, disgusting  Black Blotches on the bottom of the screen. Its just above the Macbook Air logo and can be clearly seen on a White background. Is this normal? Does Apple consider this to be a fault and will they replace it?

 

Question (2) How many people have the same problem with ugly, disgusting, black blotches on their new 2012 macbook air screen?

 

Thanks

MacBook Air, Mac OS X (10.7.4), Mid-2012

    That is not normal.  You take it to an Apple store or AASP for evaluation and see what they say.

    As long as the screen isn't cracked, you shouldn't have any trouble getting a replacement, as it's obviously a manufacturing defect.  If the screen is cracked--even a little bit--you may run into issues with Apple claiming it's damage that was caused by you and therefore not covered under warranty/Apple Care.

     

    Good luck!

    All of the airs sins 2010 have had a gradient problim were the bottom of the screen is a bit darker. sum worse then others. and sometimes worse in the corners. Before I got my air I had a mbp 13, on the fist night i had the air i notest it. i went to my local apple store and they all had it. its jest the way thay are. (I made a vid about it )
