    decided to call apple and request an exchange for my 2.3ghz 16gb 256gb retina macbook for the samething except 2.6ghz.

    thought id let you all know and your thoughts :)

    iliketurtles admits, i have a problem

    the one i have is a samsung display if that still means anything.

    actually found one tiny nick on the lid, but its not the main reason for exchanging

    You appear to have accidentally typed your thoughts out and clicked post. I thought this was Facebook for a second. Whoops.

    And I'm starting to think that the 2.7 might be worth it. :D

    Oh no, what if you get one that has image retention, yellow tint, dead pixel, etc. as a replacement?

    You should have kept the one you had, if you didn't have any other problems with it.

    Why didn't you get the 2.7 one? That would have been an upgrade that would have been worth it?

    yes...FATguy007

    and no 256gb is mroe then enough. i coming from a 120 intel SSD and still have 50gb free space. i do video rendering and all that media stuff is stored on a 2TB hard drive. i have no need to carry hundreds of videos with me

    2.7ghz is 350 dollars more which at that price not worth it. 100 for 2.6ghz though, i think worth it

    yes really

    nope wasnt worth it, 350 more for 2.7, 100 for 2.6, u pick

    yes actually no more anorisms

    technically apple is sending it first so i would have both to compare LOL

    but realistly, apple has sold thousandsof retina macbook pros, and only a fraction of those users im sure go on macrumors to report issues and such so im pretty confident the replacement new machine will be just fine

    The 2.7GHz upgrade is definitely worth it! You'll be the coolest kid [or adult] on the block!

    So how did you convince Apple to send the replacement and keep the one you have for the meantime? Did you say that there was a defect?

    OIC. So there is no way around that? Even as a courtesy for the inconvenience?
