Inspiron 13 7000 series screen dimmer near the top edge

i just got this 2 in1 yesterday

So I noticed the top edge/border of my browser window appeared darker and at first I thought it might by the styling/shading, but upon closer inspection the screen is just dimmer near the top 1/4 - 1/2 inch of the screen all the way across.  I notice this dimmer area all too often.

I did the screen's self test by having the computer powered off, holding down the 'D' key while pressing the power button. While it went through its test I could still see this dim area on the screen. very noticeable as is cycled through different solid colors on the screen.  There dim area is still there after the self test is complete and after a normal boot into windows10. Ugh.

I don't think I can live with this.

Are there any other fixes I should be attempting with this?

Have other's been experiencing this issue?

I'm thinking this might need to be returned, but the question is - Is trying another unit worth the effort?

Any help appreciated. Thanks,
