Are there any screens that don't seem to be "warm"/"off white"?

    My friend got her retina macbook pro today. Comparing it to the Macbook Air, it looks like there is clearly some yellow tint in comparison to the retina macbook pro that appears evenly distributed across the entire screen. Is this... just the way it is?

    Mine has exact problem as you described, and I've already returned it.

    Have you exchanged it? Wondering if the new one would be just as "cool" as the Macbook Air. Or if all screens are just slightly warmer in general.

    Like I have mentioned before, this is an easy way to tell if you have a samsung or lg. if it is a bit dim and yellowish at full brightness, you have yourself a Samsung! Congratulations! Or not?

    Aren't the Samsung screen generally considered to be better?

    Info? I just returned mine today. Now i have to wait on another byo rMBP. Wish I would have known that calibrating could fix the yellowing.

    Ideally, get a Spyder4Pro or similar calibration tool and let it do the work for you, but you can calibrate manually by going to Display->Colors->Calibrate in System Preferences.

    I don't think you can really calibrate on your own though unless you buy some hardware.
