For myself - Noticed "burn" lines on edges of my monitor and horizontal lines across the screen. (dark lines & "smudges") Took the Mac into Apple to see what they could do and
person there suggested I get a new computer vs getting it fixed for $1000 USD parts & labor. The Mac is out of warranty (18 months old) and their response was mainly "SOL" and they had never seen this before.

Running quickly through google & blogs - I am seeing a different story. While I need to do more research to see if same thing, I find it ridiculous that Apple dismisses it so easily. Going to try to battle this one, but figure I will lose and end up buying another
eventually - TBD.
It's definitely been more then a year now, seeing as how the post you are answering is 15 months old.

I just turned it off at night when I went to bed, I leave it on 24/7, still do, just not if I go away for a week, learned my lesson and am grateful there is nothing permanent burned on my screen.
