    As the title states..I have light leakage right where the metal meets on the sides..in 3 places. I've already returned my first IPT4 and got another brand spanking new one..Apple store looked at it and agreed. New one...same thing.

    I didn't notice initially until I got in a darker area. I took a pic of one side..you can see 2 areas of leakage. There's also an area near the volume buttons on the other side as well. Check yours folks. Both of mine exhibit this.

    Lemme know if you're seeing what i'm seeing.

    Its annoying, and shows signs of wear. Dont worry, you can always tell apple if it gets worse.

    Don't worry, ifixit says that the screen is glued on to the glass so that dust can't get it.

    If that had happened to the 2G/3G iTouch, then there'd be a risk of dust going under the screen. That's why I returned mine.

    You know i'm not really sure. I've owned several IPT's and have never seen this. Does it mean the seam is somehow compromised? Can dust get in easier? Humidity? Just doesn't sit right with me. I just paid 3 bills for this thing. I know there were some 2gs that had this issue a while back. Mines going back again.. Oh well.. I'm not too pissed.
    My Apple Store guys are cool...they'll make it right.
