    hi,

    I noticed some horizontal colored stripes appear randomly across different parts of my screen on my macbook 12 screen. Not sure if this is a defect, a el capitan issue, or software. They appear for half a second or less. never had this issue and have had the mac shortly after it was released.

    i also have el capitan on my macbook pro and no issues like this it is connected to a big monitor.

    Usually a sign of a bad graphics card, connector, or lcd. Call Apple or take it into a store.

    I find Apple support to be quite good, and unlike most other tech support they don't generally make me go through all of their simplistic flow charts to reproduce problems that I have already troubleshot. That said, they probably can run some diagnostics for you to help confirm the problem.
