    Long story short delivered yesterday sent back today for the following reasons

    :Yellowish tint in bottom right hand corner
    :Constant popping sound like when you make popcorn in the microwave or even a leaky tap dripping
    :Video sites such as youtube running stupidly slow needing to buffer every few seconds, same video in same room on same internet connection running on 2009 macbook pro ran it flawlessly, loaded the video right up with no pauses so it cant be the internet connection.
    :Lastly the cd/dvd slot scratched three DVD's in a weird way like curved scratches 5-6 in a row all next to each other.

    Anyone else have these problems (looking through the forums the yellow tint and popping noise seem to come up time and time again) anyone have a definitive answer on if these problems are isolated or every machine.
    Full specs
    3.2ghz i3

    Any help appreciated your comments will determine if i decide to get a replacement or get something different
    Thank you!

    Video buffers on youtube because you need the latest version of flash player and a fast connection.

    it could be other things, wireless card issues, web browser issues etc.

    DVD scratches; try not to insert your dvd's in an angle of +5 degrees.

    I received mine yesterday. "QP" serial #, it was custom because of the magic trackpad, which is awesome! I did notice that hte HP driver CD did have some scratches on it. I'll check with a burnt cd before I put in a Dvd. It is slower than my 27" C2D but I attribute that to the 8gb of ram compared to my stock 4GB or ram. I will be updating this.
