Is image retention still a thing?

    Hi all, first post.

    I bought the first 15" Macbook Pro Retina that was released and it was my dream machine until it started to show image retention problems a couple of months out of warranty. Apple really disappointed me with their handling of this issue, and while I got some compensation from the original retailer, it left a bad taste in my mouth and I sold the machine, swearing I'd never buy another!

    However, I've just seen a deal on a mid-2014 13" Macbook Pro (mgx72b/a).

    Can anyone confirm if there's any risk of image retention with this model or was it resolved? I believe the early 13" MBP's were quite bad with IR.

    Didn't realize it was ever a thing, but then again, I'm rocking a classic MBP, not a retina one.
