Re: White spot on thinkpad x1 carbon 3rd gen

2015-03-07, 2:19 AM
I've seen tons of these marks. They tend to change their visibility with viewing angle.

It's either a chemical solvent was applied, or physical abrasion. Either one can damage the coating on the screen and produce these spots.

With how thin these machines are and how little clearance there is, I'm going to go with abrasion. See if the mark lines up with a key on the keyboard.

Is this the touch or non-touch panel?

If you don't mind, keep us posted on how customer service handles this.  I'm also dealing with the same issue and was thinking of contacting support.
