Thanks for the good answer ACP. I guess nevertheless without opening the glass is not possible to "see" if the dust is inside or outside the LCD, right? I would like to be sure on that. If the iMac is under warranty and i decided to open it i will loose it.

If there is dust between the glass and the lcd it can be cleaned. You would need to use suction cups to remove the glass and then you would be able to clean it. The glass is thin and fragile and can shatter/crack if you are not careful. If the dust is actually inside the lcd then it would need an lcd replacement. Since you are under warranty, even though it would take some time, at least it would be free. Hope this helps!
