    Hi everyone,

    so today i picked up a 15inch retina macbook pro, the base 2.4ghz one.

    i got it off gumtree for £1100, i know, very low price (something fishy), not yet however, it seems to be running perfectly, havent noticed any lag, OR most importantly screen retention seeing as its a LG display, are all 2013 rmbp lg's? So far the display is amazing, i just really hope it doesnt diminish the more i use it!

    planning on getting BF3 on it and GTA4, and final cut pro, for my thousands of unedited Gopro footage from snowboarding and diving

    i sold my 2010 13inch for this, so so far its a massive improvement

    Run an diagnostic test in order to be sure that everything is OK. Displays are made by 2 companies, some from LG and some from Samsung. People have better luck with the Samsung displays

    I would start off with a clean install of OS X and then run all 10.8.x updates to the system, maybe also do a PRAM and SMC reset.

    If you want to know who manufactured the screen, run this command via Terminal;

    ioreg -lw0 | grep \"EDID\" | sed "/[^<]*</s///" | xxd -p -r | strings -6
    If your display code begins with "LP," it's an LG display, if its "LSN" it's Samsung.

    the guy i bought it from wiped it, but i re wiped it when i got it and installed the updates. i think i read that the after 10.8.3 you didnt need to reset the smc?
