    I have the 15" MBPr and I'm experiencing both IR and a squeaking noise when I move the display up or down. I am hoping to get some opinions on whether a replacement or repair is more likely, as I use it for work and getting by for 7+ days without it would be pretty hard. I am taking it to the Genius Bar next week, but if anyone has had similar issues, could you please share your experience.

    A repair is much more likely.

    Do make sure you have a good backup of your system before you send it out.

    Probably won't take 7 days. More likely 2-3. Sometimes next day if they're not too busy.

    I was thinking that would be the case. I will try to explain the situation, but if it has to be sent out for repair I'll live.

    Would a Time Machine backup work, or are you referring to something else?

    That is great news! I don't know where I saw it, but I had 7-10 days in my head for some reason.

    Time Machine backup works, Time Capsule or USB drive or Thunderbolt drive or an online cloud system. They all work.

    Time Machine is fine. Some people don't bother with any sort of backups.

    The people who don't bother with any sort of backups are the ones you see one here often looking "data recovery software", trying to desperately grab some files of a dead hdd.

    Be wise people! Keep a backup!
