    On startup I'm having horizontal lines and the web pages all seem to be on top of one another. After a few minutes it clears up for the most part but I still have some faint flashing on the address bar. Anyone else? This is a 13" MBP with the touch bar.

    Sounds like GPU issues. Exchange it or return it and wait a few months until the issues clear up.

    That's what I thought also. Damn thing is I really need this computer for work. I'm taking it in Friday but they don't have any appointments so it will be a walkin deal. I have an old iPhone 5 with a ballooned battery I figure I'll see if I can get them to fix that at the same time. Maybe they will give me some slack due to having an issue with the computer.

    Well, I took it into Apple and it wouldn't recreate the issue it had. They sent it off to get fixed and replaced the screen. I will see how it is when I get it back. Hopefully that's the end of he issues with it.
