    Its been an ongoing problem with my MacBook Pro Retina, at night time where you rest your arms / palms it feel like theres current coming from them.

    I have to stop using it for a few seconds then it comes back slowly.....

    Its been going ongoing for a while, and its an intermittent problem!

    Have got a telephone call secluded for Monday with Apple.

    Am I being an idiot about this?

    Thanks All!


    EDIT: Use the original / genuine charger that came with the MacBook Pro :D

    500 read, 0 replies. I must be really boring.

    Anyway walked into Apple Store today. Walked out with a brand new MacBook Pro Retina.

    Yes they did not attempt a repair.

    Take that for a reply :apple:

    I read, but figured someone else would reply. I have experienced the same thing. But it was intermittent, so I attributed it to the outlet I was plugging it into.

    Thats what I thought from reading another thread, but this was happening whilst the Mac was not plugged in.

    The whole MacBook Pro was replaced with a brand new one...take that for CS!
