    hey all,

    ok i've been reading this forum since yesterday and i noticed many people are talking about missing pixels in their new thinkpads.

    dead or missing pixels? is that some known defect with thinkpads?

    I haven't heard of too many. I just got my T61p two weeks ago and no dead/stuck pixels yet.

    Dead/stuck pixels unfortunately are a fact of life. All laptop manufacturers ship some of their laptops with dead/stuck pixels. Lenovos are not unique nor do they suffer any more from this than most other name brands.

    yes I know. but for example I never read a single thread at macbook forums about dead pixels. why? because apparently its never been an issue with that computer.
    and the fact that every one gets his thinkpad and talks about dead pixels right away makes me wonder.. has there been an issue with the thinkpads specifically?

    Although I can't specifically speak about Apple and their dead/stuck pixel policy, I would be extremely surprised if they actually checked and shipped their LCDs with absolutely none of them. If they do kudos to them.

    ps My LCD has no dead/stuck pixels
