The OP should probably ask for some form of compensation, e.g. a printer.
Tossing away a display unit because of a tiny imperfection is wasteful. You
know it; the manufacturer knows it. Replacing the unit would be more
expensive (to them) than paying for a printer.
Just my 2c,
Alternatively, squeeze out of them a peripheral display (a monitor) and
possibly get yourself a dual-head laptop, if the graphics card supports it.
