    How is it that you "just" noticed? You've seem to have had your rMBP for several days now.

    Have you calibrated the display yet?

    Directions:
    Using the Display Calibrator Assistant in Mac OS X:

    From the Apple menu, choose System Preferences.
    Click Displays.
    Click the Color tab.
    Click the Calibrate button.
    Click on the Expert Mode checkbox.
    Follow the instructions, and save the custom profile when finished.

    Or you could try, SuperCal It's what I use and it's free to try.
    SuperCal is shareware which means that you can download it and try it out for free, but it will have some features disabled until it a license is purchased and activated. This lets you see the on-screen results of SuperCal's calibration before needing to purchase a license.

    Hope that helps

    it is funny how average customer can notice that something is not right, right from the box, but apple quality control is ok with that, I am wondering if they using some kind of equipment to check screen (backlight bleeding, color acuracy etc.) or they just turn it on, and if screen working, then pass the "test"

    Ok well I'm returning this I just noticed that when I have the laptop on my lap it makes a loud creaking sound this is getting annoying now, this is now my 3rd replacement, at this point i'm really thinking of getting the xps 15, there are way to many issues with these laptops the price tag on these are not worth the hassle and stress.
