    I see it's a little bit brighter around the edges but not a separation of the screen and light source... Are you expecting the screen to turn off when you have it on a black screen, in a completely dark room where I'm sure you work hours on end editing perfectly black screens?

    ID be pissed too. That sucks, sorry.

    I have a base model with no issues, I love it. I ordered a base with 16GB RAM however and will be returning this base once I get the new one. I hope I dont have issues.

    No but when I'm watching movies with black bars it's easily noticeable and annoying as hell. Even with webpages with white, grey, black background you can see the slight hue difference from left to right. The left side is slightly more warm/yellow and the right side is slightly more pinkish/white. I'm sorry but for the money I spent on this machine I'm disappointed.

    5 rMBPs later and I've yet to find one without panel issues (including this red/green issue).

    no doubt you should be happy with a purchase that cost that much but maybe apple does not make a good enough product to suit your expectations

    I think I'm just gonna go with a regular macbook pro with hi res screen and give the retina a shot a year down the line.

    If you catch the reflection of a light (like a lamp, overhead light) in the black glossy outer edge of your rMBPs does it kinda look oily, like the rainbows you can see in puddles on the side of the road?

    I'm assuming it is part of the antiglare they implemented, because I never see it on the actual screen. This "oil" layer looks to be pink and green.

    The reason I'm brining this up is that I just checked my rMBP and at -2 max brightness in the pitch black and it was perfect. However on max brightness the left looked greenish, and the right looked pinkish. When I moved my head, knelt down, or adjusted my viewing angle the screen was the entire hued the color in regards to which side I was viewing it from.

    So my conclusion is that the rMBP isn't meant to be on max brightness in the dark, because it really doesn't need to be.

    Look at my comment a few posts above about the hue from left to right issue.

    Yes I notice the slight oily look at certain angles with light hitting it.

    And yet your cheap crappy Dell laptops come with perfect screens with no pressure marks and horrible yellow tints.

    The problem isnt with the quality of the product Apple engineer and design, its a problem with the pathetic factories they use, and their inability to handle the demand in any of their product lines effectively.

    The light bleed shown in the photo is virtually unnoticeable. If this is how your screen actually looks, I think you are impossible to please and will never be happy. Based on your photo, there is absolutely no problem that I can see. Someone like you will go through 8 MacBook Pros and not be happy, so why not just short circuit the process and forget it? You'll save yourself a lot of time and frustration.

    ----------

    Really? When has Dell ever been subjected to level of critique and expectation of perfection as Apple?

    I expected more from a $3800 laptop. Theres slight bleeding at the bottom left corner and those horrible color hues all over the screen. Don't sit and here start judging me because I expected more from an expensive laptop. Just because you accept mediocrity doesn't mean I will.

    I did and I ordered a regular MBP.

    Yes, it's so slight that it's barely noticeable in a photograph. I can only imagine how hard you had to look and how much time you had to spend before you found this supposed problem.

    … and I have no doubt that you will find something wrong with the MBP as well. People like you will always try and find something to be unhappy about. It's in your psychology. You could have just said "hey, the photo doesn't show it as well as I see it in person", but since you didn't it's obvious that you feel the photo is an accurate representation of the severity of your problem. As such, you're being completely ridiculous to return a RMBP over such a non-issue.

    They call this pixel peeping on some of the photography web sites.

    Theretically a perfect retina mac could be produced in quantity for say 5 million apiece. There is unlikely to be a long waiting line.

    Reminds me of the perfect Mac G3 / router software thing NASA is running on that new Mars buggy. You can buy G3 motherboards for nearly nothing. Or get a perfect one mil-spec starting at 200k with many up charges past that. The one on the buggy likely cost a lot more than 200k and there are numerous highly paid and educated people supporting and maintaining it, adding to the cost.

    Your rMBP is fine.

    I noticed the bleed before I even took the picture. This isn't just backlight bleed issue, maybe if you took the time to read through the posts instead of completely jumping to conclusions and coming off as someone who doesn't like seeing people with apple problems then maybe you would be more understanding. I could honestly give two turds what you think about my decision making. Get over yourself.

    You said in your post "This is my 3rd rMBP and more light/color bleed galore." So you are saying that you returned this machine for a different reason than you originally stated when you started this thread? The fact that you said "more light/color bleed" means that you are actively looking for this issue in all of the machines that you've purchased. And guess what? You will always find something if you look for it hard enough.

    Your multiple responses to my posts says otherwise.

    Uhh no, Light/Color bleed means exactly that. Light bleed and a weird color hue bleed. Of course I'm gonna look for the same issue. Why would I even bother getting a replacement if I wasn't going to make sure the new one doesn't have the same issue?

    i am on my 3rd one as well.

    first one has 1 dead pixel
    2nd one has bad backlight bleed.
    3rd one has perfect screen. but the bottom case makes this squeaky sound when i rest my wrists besides trackpads. The bottom case was fitted well. I could see poor edge fitting.

    Still trying to get a perfect one.

    Apple is actually being really nice for exchanging over nothing like this. I could read by the black screen of my old dell.

    I'd say paying that much money qualifies your arguments. And I agree... ditch the rMBP "concept" until they get it right.

    This was a common problem with displays for years. It may be an issue that they aren't designing around some of the inherent problems. I find some of the screen photos a bit disconcerting though. They seem to give a slightly odd interpretation at times. As an example a black screen made brighter tends to accentuate the differences between colors there. There is always some measure of shift, but it should be so slight as to be unnoticeable during use.



    That isn't really pixel peeping. He's not some silly photographer zooming into 500% to admire clean dots.
    At that point I'd just wait it out until the next generation. It's not worth putting that much effort into trying to get the perfect electronic device.

    There's people around here that defend Apple to no end, and people that are overly critical of everything Apple does. Sometimes it makes for good discussion...until people start hurling insults at each other. Do you go around calling out the people who take the opposite stance and rip on Apple for everything? Just curious.

    In general, people's views are never completely un-biased. Some skew more to one side, some to the other. There's plenty of both kinds around here, and that's likely to continue as long as this site exists. But do we really need to resort to calling each other pathetic or other various insults? And no, I'm not trying to stick up for either side. Just getting sick of the constant squabbling, I guess.
