    Looks to me like you've got some burn-in could have been from too much pressure damaging the LCD
    My Imav G5 has the same thing but sadly my warranty is expired but... idc cuz last night it surged and fried my motherboard =( (err... Logic board as mac calls it)

    Yes, when I powered it up at the apple store I didn't notice it because of the lights. But when I'm in notes, you can see it very clearly that there is that patch of different colors

    Then yes, just go to the apple store, and say i brought this home and was using it and noticed a discoloration in the screen they should happily exchange it for a new one.
