MacBook Pro: Inconsistent backlight, hissing LCD [Updated x2]


MacBook Pro: Inconsistent backlight, hissing LCD [Updated x2]:
The bottom of the LCD is noticeably brighter than the rest of the display, with a translucent white stripe (no affiliation to the band) stretching from one end to the other. Also, at the back of the bottom of the display (near the vent area) there seems to be a high-pitched hissing noise, presumably (?) emanating from the LCD (as the sound is consistent from one end of the lid to the other).

From what I had read in the various Apple blogs/magazines, it was thought there might be some slight problems with first rev of apple hardware. I guess the above are those problems. I'm quite happy with my Powerbook G4 for now anyways.
