    Just got my MacBook today everything work fine

    Until I just found out that my MacBook got some weird backlight at the bottom of screen (see attached)

    I have tried reset screen (control+shift+power), reset PVRAM, and reset SMC and all of these fix doesn't fix this issue for me

    Does anyone got this issue too and the way to fix it
    Or if not I'll have to return this one too Apple: mad:

    one of the worst display I ever seen... it is warranty time, if you buy right from the apple store, they should by able to replace display along with upper lid within an hour

    edit: or better, if you can just return whole computer and ask for new piece, I will not accept repairing brand new machine

    That is definitely a badly built display. Do return it.

    This time when you call Apple for a replacement, ask to speak to a Supervisor, and ask for compensation.

    Ridiculous.

    This is crazy but welcome to the club. I'm waiting for my 4th replacement. All three prior had screen issues.

    I hope for your sake the next replacement you get is perfect.

    That's a great background to test the yellowish tint. Mind sharing the link?
