    Ok, I do got the yellow tint but its so hard to see that I forgot about it. A problem that is coming to my nerves is that the left side from my screen got more blue than the right side, which looks more white. Its something like the display brightness changes from the left to the right side. Is it normal ??? I am afraid to ask for another one because my yellow is too low and I got no dead pixels, so I am pretty happy about those issues...
    Does any one have this ?
    Thank you very much!

    If its an issue then I would exchange with a new machine. You say that you are worried about receiving a yellow 'tinted' machine, however ask to turn it on in store and see for yourself. At least that way you can be sure you are receiving the machine you want.

    It is definitely not normal (unless it is really hard to notice). Are you still in the 14 day grace period? Even if not, a call to the Customer Service may help to get computer replaced.

    The problem is that I live in Brazil, and we dont have appl retail stores. So if I would exchange it I would need to do it through apple online store, and them I cant see the problem.
    Except for this problem, that is not THAT noticeble, everything is perfect. No dead pixels, veery light yellow tinge, no noise. I am afraid I change a problem for another one, you see ?

    I don't know much about how it would work in Brazil, but Apple has a good customer service, I think worldwide. Try to call them and share your concerns and who knows? But there are always risks of course, so eventually you have to decide.

    I think I will keep it. I am getting a camera so I can take a shot and you guys can tell me your opinions. But for now I will keep it. Its not that bad at all. And with all other things that can happen if I ask for a new one, I prefer not to run the risk.
    Thank you!

    And why would our eyes want to trick us (and our cameras and Photoshops) on Apple displays only? Some kind of an anti-Apple conspiracy?
