    would this be considered acceptable backlight bleed? just got a 2012 cMBP with an anti glare screen. i would return it but dont want to get anything any worse. if this is common, then im A ok.

    If you are not happy, take it back. You spent money on a high end machine. You can demand perfection.

    I thought the anti glare came with a silver bezel?

    Any other opinions? Wouldn't this be considered as normal? This seems to be subtle in comparison to the others have posted especially on the rMBP.

    Looks a lot better than what mine looked like (link).

    The backlight bleeding on the bottom looks about the same as what I had.

    Bottom line, send it back for a refund and reorder another.

    Is that a solid black background? Looks more like a dark blue. If I were you I would exchange it only if it bothered you in regular light conditions or low light because it doesn't seem too severe compared to others. I only see a small bottom edge line of bleeding and it seems quite normal since searching for a perfect screen is almost impossible. I went through 8 rMBPs to receive a acceptable screen that had little or extremely minimal bleeding.

    That doesn't look to bad to me. the kind of bleed you have is dark and might go away in a while. Do you notice it all the time? or only in black backrounds? Im going to Live with it as long as I can then go in and get the screen replaced. I only hope that If or when I do, I wont get a screen thats worse :/

    I thought yours is pretty bad until I saw Weeman's. Holy cow! How does that pass quality control? :eek:
