    Hi guys,

    As the title suggests, how do I check which screen I have in the new 15inch rMBP I have coming on Mon. Heard about IR issues with these Macs, I'm hoping that this is not the issue with buying one now rather than one at launch.

    Type this into terminal:

    ioreg -lw0 | grep \"EDID\" | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6

    and if I remember correctly
    LSNXXXX = Samsung

    Honestly, I don't think the IR is as big of an issue as everyone think. I have an LG display and I haven't notice any IR, but then again I don't go looking for it. If it becomes a problem during my normal usage, I will take it into an Apple store.
