I'm a university student and I've been looking for a new laptop for a while now, since my old 2007 Dell has become quite long in the tooth. I've owned a myriad of Apple products over the years and have been pretty much satisfied with the build quality and overall usability of their products, so I perhaps decided it was time to take the leap and sink some money into a good high quality MacBook (I'm not even going to bother trying to learn Windows 8, so that rules out nearly every new notebook manufactured). My research has lead me to the conclusion that probably the best choice for me is a 15" rMBP, as I tend to do a bit of video editing and I want the extra processing power and speed on demand, if I need it. With this whole IR issue that seems to be persistent with the LG displays, what do you think the probabilities are that I, after placing an order with Apple, would receive a MBP that displays IR? Is it quite low? All the information I'm seeing online gives me a feeling that good segment of them have this issue. However, out of the 129 Amazon reviews for the 15", 86% of them are 4/5 stars, and a sum total of 2 mention having actually experienced retention issues? Do the later-week LG displays tend to be better? This is a big deal for me because such a purchase represents a substantial amount of my income; not only that, but I do need reliability, especially considering that the nearest Apple Store/Genius Bar is over 2,200km away (New Zealand is in the middle of nowhere). I know this is a hard sort of question to quantify, and I know I can't get reassurance, but I'd like some sort of guesstimate. Thanks! // Luke.
