    Hey guys, while waiting for the rMBP to arrive, I looked into all the issues people were having with their factory-fresh rMBP and cMBP. I compiled it into a checklist of things to look for when it first arrives (14 day window). Here's the list:

    Also made a list of all known poor/low battery fixes (two from migration assistant, one from kindle, and the generic NVRAM reset which seemed to actually help some), and other useful info here: (battery info is under "Other Issues")

    I'm copying this important one here for those that skip over it:

    Aka don't just reformat into Mountain Lion when it arrives (for those that receive a rMBP before it's factory installed).

    I hope you find it useful. If I missed anything let me know.

    Here's 2 pics of my rMPB from iPhone 4 camera. It arrived with a huge dent on the bottom case. The screen also has a strong yellow tint. I tried Apple's Color Calibration tool a dozen times, but the color stayed yellow. Anyone know if the yellow fades over time?

    Replacement rMBP

    Update - Apple's sending out a replacement unit. They were very nice about everything. They couldn't give me an ETA, but now the website's displaying "Ships: 5 - 7 business days"
