Well, I must disagree too. For this "uniqueness" isn't so unique. In the year 2002 alone, according to this article:http://cyberatlas.internet.com/big_p...459871,00.html
There were 135.5 million laptops sold. Now, let's say for the sake of simplicity that:
1) No laptops existed before that.
2) All laptops use UXGA.
So, even taking my generous assumptions into account, like the fact that UXGA has a -ton- of pixels, let's move on to the calculations:
1600 x 1200 = 1920000.
1 / 1920000 = 5.2083e-7
135,500,000 * 5.2083e-7 = 70.572916 = 70.
This means that if every laptop came with a dead pixel, 70 PER YEAR would come with said pixel dead. However, this isn't the case, so let's say 1 in 10 laptops come with a dead pixel. Well, toodooloo, there are 7 other laptops like yours. Boo hoo...
