I have the same problem. It began with to bright spots in the lower part of the panel, one in the left and one in the right corner. They came from one day to the other; now, a few days later, two, larger, non-circular blothes have emerged in the centre-left of the screen. The PC is not even a month old.
I did the pixel test mentioned - and it does not appear to be faulty pixels; the blotches remain visible with all colours, except for black, which is basically all the pixels turned off. The shape and size of the blotches also point to something else than pixel error.
Any idea what this might be? It is certainly getting worse by the day.

I have a small bright spot that can be easily seen on a white background, but disappears on a black background. What is this, and can something like this spread or get worse?
Doesn't seem like a dead pixel since it is lit it seems.
Anyone see something like this on their displays? This is a on a new machine.

In addition to the dot I also found in the upper right hand corner that on white background, theres a patch of the same. I think it may have something to do with whatever is behind the panel.. like if there is a foil or something. They both only show on lighter backrounds. Darks look really good.. I am hesitant to send it back because god knows what I will get as far as a unit the with same or worse issues. I think I can live with it. Already had to send another unit back, this whole purchase is well over a month now.

You might want to use something like Dead pixel tester to assess how many spots there are. Lenovo has a "dead pixel policy" under which they'll replace any panel that has more than a few (I don't recall the exact number) problematic pixels.

Hi Amy Lenovo
It is very hard to capture the bright spots on camera, even though I use a Canon 5D Mark II; they appear much less significant on the photos than they appear when viewing the screen live; moreover, this problem is excarcerbated by the very small image size (333K) that this website allows for. Nonetheless, here are photos of the three spots/blotches that have emerged so far; all are circled in red.
Not sure what the P/N is, but the S/N is: 15/01.
Thanks for taking this issue serious. I use this laptop for photo-editing, and needless to say, blotches on the screen are unacceptable.
