This is my 6th Apple laptop and the first time I have experience a pixel problem. In addition I have owned several flat panel displays and PC laptops with no such problem. Perhaps I have just been lucky, but never encountered a bad pixel before. I am starting to get concerned about Apples quality. I have always been confident that I could count on Apple providing the highest quality products, and when problem occurred providing a no hassle fix.
Last year I purchase an iPod. Had to return it 4 times for replacement before I got one without a problem. The issues included display problems, battery problems, and hard drive problems.
Is Apple quality degrading form the use of cheap materials and/or cheap labor?
