    It's most likely a stuck pixel and is an easy fix. Most likely will fix and return same one. Would be easier to take to Apple Store. Best case you will get a refurb.

    There's no Apple store in Ottawa? If you are going to Toronto, that's your best bet. And I know the rule with computer monitors is that it has to be a lot of stuck pixels to get it replaced. I don't know if they will care for one. But then again, it's Apple and I'm sure they will give you a refurb or something of that nature.

    I don't know if they are going to give you a new one with just one stuck pixel. I doubt it is dead, but they don't really think one pixel is worth making a customer happier. I saw this in one of the posts: the best you'll get is a refurbished one.
