    Does anyone have any more recent info on screen staining issues on the rMBPs? Are they affecting the 2015 models? I'm really wanting to upgrade to a retina MBP, but just discovered that this is an issue. I've always been an avid MBP guy, but this issue is putting me off from purchasing an rMBP . Don't want to throw my money onto the casino table. Input? Reassurance?

    I'll give you the same answer I give on all threads regarding this "issue".

    There are millions of retina MacBook Pros in the world, tens of millions in fact. What you see online and in forums is a (very) vocal minority of users who report issues. Forums are mostly used by people who are trying to find a solution to a problem. So if you go on any forum regarding any product, most of what you'll see are various issues about the product.

    Nobody bothers to look up a forum dedicated to a product, sign up, find the correct place to post in to make a thread "Hey, mine works fine!". That just doesn't happen.

    You are very likely not to experience a single problem with your computer.

    Once you do get it, don't scrutinize it for any tiny little imperfection. If you look hard enough, everything you own has a few. Don't install monitoring apps. Don't go checking battery cycles, screen manufacturer, etc. Don't fall into the endless pit of OCD-like behaviour a lot of users on here have. Just use the darn thing. Don't let anything take away from the enjoyment/usage of it. If nothing's readily apparent when you take it out of the box, then you're fine.

    If your machine has any problems, it has a warranty, make use of it should the need arise.

    Bought a 2015. Great, fluidly operating machine.

    The most recent info: there is no issue. The reports of screen 'stains' are so rare and fragmented, that it almost makes all the other 'issues' like iMac yellow screen or iPhone 6 bending believable. Enjoy your MacBook. If there is something wrong with the screen, thats what the warranty is.

    P.S. Don't clean your screen with toothpaste, like some geniuses here :D

    I suppose that means no flossing either? :)
