    hi everyone. i just got my macbook week ago. i noticed that the menu bar
    had a slight pink color on the right side. i went on the apply website and read on calibrating the display but it still has pink lines. anyone has the same issue.
    also does it matter if we calibrate the display or not. and finally, i read on some site that we supposed to calibrate it in the dark, which i did not do. is that the reason i am still seeing pink color.

    Calibrating usually change the entire screen - like makes colors more vivid, brighter and so on. If you have a discoloration on a specific part of the screen, there's a high chance that it's the display itself that is damaged. I suggest you bring it in to the nearest apple store and they'll replace either the screen or the entire computer for you for free.

    After calibrating is it possible to return to the default?

    Call Apple first (Applecare). They'll guide you through the process, and it might be more authoritative than your average Apple genius.

    definitely sounds like a lemon. Screens sometimes get damaged in the manufacturing process, and it's hard to tell it until you actually use the computer.

    just take it back and you should be given a new one - maybe even a complimentary upgrade.

    ya i called apple care but i wasn't in front of my mac so i gotta call them
    back. but he told me that if it comes to replacing it, since i bought mine
    online, i will have to send it back and then they will ship me a new one.
    so i hope it doesn't come to that cuz thats just an hassle.
    anyway, i'll keep u guys updated.
