I bought a new Alienware laptop off of Ebay. The laptop was factory sealed and appeared brand new in every way.
However, when I started it up - within the first hour of use - on three occasions - I had a thin white line horizonally across the display. I saw this three times only. After this initial observance - the lines have never returned after several hours of use - and several re-boots.
I can return this laptop and buy another one identical to this one from Best Buy for a few hundred more. My question is if this occurance is something I should worry about and should I consider paying a few hundred more to get another new unit in the place of this one??? I am worried that this problem will return at a later date. I am willing to pay a little more to get a fresh (different) laptop.
What can cause these lines I describe? Can (or should I say) what are the chances that this will reoccur?
I would appreciate as many opinions on this matter as possible.
