I got my refurb Macbook Air a few days ago.

Today, I open the lid and suddenly I see stripes going across the screen a lot of them all over the screen even though the computer kept running smoothly, stripes were like electrical ones as if not enough electricity going through. I rebooted and now it's gone.

Do I worry? What you think I should do? I've never seen this type of error on a screen ever.

Unless it comes back and won't go away after a reboot, I wouldn't worry.

That's what the warranty is for. If it comes back, take it in. Otherwise, perhaps it was crash in process. Sometimes a kernel panic looks like that.

I remember this being associated with a defective shipment.
I would return it for a new unit if the problem persists.
