    Apple replaced my Macbook Pro today, after I was having wifi disconnect problems. Unfortunately, I got a LG LCD and a Sandisk SSD.

    Honestly, mixed feelings. The customer service is great and all, but the wifi problems were a hassle in the first place.

    You win some, you loose some. Are there any details that show that the LG LCD is failing you? Don't complain until issues actually arise.

    I previously had a Macbook Air with both the supposedly "bad" SSD and LCD. It worked great though and never let me down. On my Macbook Pro, I previously had the "good" Samsung LCD but the bad wifi was just such a headache.

    Goes to show that some problems are specific to certain Lot or Bin of production, not the entire line.

    Which Wifi issues people usually experience with the rMBPs? Is it only on the 2013 ones?

    What model MacBook please? I'm surprised they didn't simply replace the airport chip

    It was a 2013 mbp retina 15, if you Google wife problems for that model you'll find tons of posts

    I believe you have got the second rev LG screen SJA2, which all the problems are fixed now.

    Good to know. I wasn't aware the LG screen issues had been resolved.

    Exactly, if I had a nickel for every person that comes along with "My brother's neighbor's girlfriend's hairstylist's nephew who has a friend that works for the NSA that read an email from a user on a forum that screen x may possibly have an issue" I could probably buy two computers and compare the screens.

    If everything is fine and dandy, just be happy until you see issues arising.

    I'm actually very concerned about what you guys say as "wifi problem". I'm on the way of purchasing a new laptop (coming from an MBA 13" 2011, which has been perfectly fine up until now), but it seems that new models these days no matter from which brand do get complaints about wireless issues. From MBA 2013 (not sure if it's been fixed? Apple says it's released software updates), to Dell XPS 15 to Sony Vaio Pro 13" and Fit 15". And now you're saying rMBP gets it too. Seems strange. Is that the common fault among new gen of laptops?
