    I had a Macbook Pro Retina 15" that was experiencing graphics errors: screen tearing, shuddering, glitching, etc.

    See This Thread

    After 3 repairs and over 7 weeks wait i finally received a brand new Macbook Pro Retina. Problem over? No.

    The original issue started when the Documents folder in the dock started shuddering when scrolling over it. It was the beginning of the end. And now, my new Retina is showing the same issue. This time, i've managed to capture it on video:

    Documents Folder Glitch

    Does anyone know what this is? Is it a known issue? Or is it my software (I don't have anything unusual)?

    Retina, 15-inch, Early 2013
    2.4 GHz Intel Core i7
    16 GB 1600 MHz DDR3
    NVIDIA GeForce GT 650M 1024 MB
    OS X 10.8.3 (12D78)
    (Oh, and it's a Samsung display)

    Weird. It certainly looks like a minor version of what you had before. 'Fraid you're going to have to pay another visit...

    This is such a drain. I still haven't got this macbook up and running to how the old one was with all my files, etc. So annoying. I can't take the smug look on another "genius"' face. So, so annoying.

    Looks like you're going to need to take it in again fella.

    Sucks, I know, but obviously you've gotten pretty unlucky with the Macbook

    I've seen this on my rMBP 15". I think it's a bug in OSX.
