    *sigh* not another staingate thread!

    Soooory :D. But I am a little worried about my mid-2012 rMBP.

    So this staingate problem happens FOR SURE on every rMBP from 2012 to 2014 models? I mean it's for sure that my display will gonna have this coating issue ? Should I spare some money for a display replacement (because I will not..better buy something else) ? Or just some models were affected because of how they were made?

    I am very carefull when I clean my display. I am not using solutions or something just water. Sometimes just a dry micro fiber from Apple.

    Thanks !

    If it doesn't have it after 4 years it probably won't get it. But I suppose you could put a screen protector on it and that should prevent it rather than replacing the Retina display.

    Hmm I also heard that those screen protectors destroys the anti-reflex coating

    I would'nt worry, in fact I also have one from '12 and don't worry. With the samsung lcd, no problems at all. You can check which you have with this: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/4990702?tstart=0

    I'm not sure, but I think the problematic ones are from LG.

    What problem is this? Never heard it.

    Does the 2015 have it also?

    I'm pretty sure it was just the early Retinas, 2012-2013. Almost certain not 2015.

    Wow... 3 model years total. And the 2011 is plagued with logic board failures (at least the 17" is). 4 straight years.

    I don't get why so many people, especially around here, act like Apple products don't have problems. Even the major widespread flaws aside, look how many people have failures on devices that are only a few years old (hard drives, screen problems, logic boards, etc).

    You really are best waiting a bit after a new release and researching what you buy, regardless of if it's from Apple or whoever else.

    Yea.
    Now I wonder if my battery needs to be changed. It has 454 cycles and 85% health.
    I think I am gonna buy an iMac. I am tired of being so careful with the Macbook ( don't touch the screen, becareful, the magasfe can break, becareful, the battery may die, becareful the dgpu might fail). It's like I am having a baby xD.
