    I'm on my 2nd MBP right now (first one returned from a crashed HD) now this one seems to have a flickering screen problem, it appears to flicker when I put down the brightness to anything lower than full brightness. Full brightness seems fine, but as soon as I lower it one notch down, it flickers. Does anyone else have this problem? Should I take it back again?

    Yes, take it back. It should not flicker.

    Definitely take it back. Normally I would advise people to keep their laptops when they encounter small very minor flaws (which is unavoidable with any laptop), but flickering screen is one of the worst problems far from minor. So yeah, exchange it for another one.

    Bump, does anyone else have this flickering LED problem? I hear the previous gen used to have this problem and was fixed with a software update. Do you think this could also be the case for this problem?

    Yeah, you got a point. I wonder why. Its not like there will be any MB rating here or something? I know in Cnet the other day, some people start writing negative reviews about the new Macs and the cool part is, they got flamed by other users cause posting about something they don't own. :D

    Adding a pointless post to your own thread to 'bump'/move it to the top of a forum.
