I'm one of the unlucky Apple powerbook customers who bought one of the 15" powerbooks that developed white spots in the LCD screen. I've learned to live with them but they still bug me when the machine first boots and they are most obvious.

Well, it turns out Apple is a pretty cool company. At first they refused to repair the spots under warrantee but this morning I was surfing their support pages and found this: http://www.apple.com/support/powerbook/displayprogram/. I turns out that a large enough percentage developed the problem that Apple caved and decided to fix people's powerbooks.

I check my PB's serial number and sure enough, it is elligible for repairs. YEAH!! So, if you're like me and have a spotted 15" powerbook; shut it down, pull out the battery and check the serial number against the list. It may be elligible for a *free* replacement LCD.

Thank you Apple.
