How many of us did not get a yellow screen defect on their first MBP?

    I think ill speak for everyone when I say Im just as tired of complaints as I am tired of comebacks like, "The complaints (about yellowing screens) here represent a minority of the customers that bought the MBP." Put your money where your mouth is, post here if your MBP was perfect the first time.

    Im hardly a fanboy, but it would be nice to see how widespread the problem is so that potential buyers could make an informed decision based on fellow satisfied MBP buyers, and not just the disgruntled ones. So if the satisfied ones are out there, please, sound off.

    Had mine for 2wks....2.6GHz. Everything is great.

    Newbie question....you said your screen was an LG, how can I identify which one I have?

    Perfect screen, and I've had this for a while, about 8 months.

    Mine's fine. Only problem is that it doesn't close totally flush, but I'd rather live with that than a borked screen.

    Like all the "major issues" you hear about, the yellowing affects a very small minority of systems. Mine is perfect too :)

    I must admit when I read your posting, it annoyed me.

    I have spent the most ever on a laptop and bought a MBP and for £1,700 I think I have the right to complain if there are any defects.

    Perhaps if you have had to go through the rigmarole of spending ages on the phone with Apple trying to get it fixed, you may be a little frustrated. I have waited nearly 2 weeks each time for a MBP without any problems and am now on for the 3rd one.

    Imaging you spent a lot of money on a new TV, you get it home and the picture is terrible and it is a hardware fault that happens on both Sat, DVD and VCR? I don't think you would sit there for long and thought oh well, there are bound to be some problems, i'll ignore it.

    I am usually quite placid and patient, but not when I spend a huge amount of money from a manufacturer that prides itself on quality!

    /Rant over/

    PS - in the spirit of this thread, my MacBook Black is perfect (and that cost me half of my MBP)

    PPS - while waiting for my 3rd MBP I have reverted to my old PPC iMac G5 20". Flawless - I am seriously considering giving up on the MBP and be done with it!

    Mine was perfect too (except that it doesn't close *quite* flush, but pretty darn close). 2.2 LG Screen, matte, unsure about week but I received it the first week of July.

    The poll linked above is hardly a scientific way to determine the number of flawed machines! This is my first mac, and I'm happy. But I was worried about yellow screen issues and would have insisted on returning it and getting a machine without problems. I don't see the problem with that. But I don't think the flawed rate is anywhere near 50% - I know a number of people that bought new machines this summer and had no issues.

    After lurking and reading these forums for several months before purchasing my MBP, I was very pleased to find that my week 43 glossy screen MBP has no yellowing issues and the lid closes evenly.
