    Is this normal backlight bleed? It's actually works on my MacBook Pro 15" Late 2013: 2.6Ghz/16GB/Iris Pro and I think it is running 5K. Unfortunately it laggy as hell when I zoom in Photoshop and drag a document to left and right etc.

    Backlight bleed is hard to evaluate via a picture, but yes, that's probably pretty normal. The solution tends to be not to look at black images in a dark room. :D

    From a late '13 MBPr I suspect you'd only get a 4k resolution, and no, I'm not the least bit surprised that it struggles. Protip: Unless you're planning to upgrade your computer soon it would be better to get a 2560x1440 screen similar to the now retired Thunderbolt Display. You can get a nice IPS screen at that resolution and with no more backlight bleed pretty cheap nowadays.

    I'm planning to get the new rMBP. Just can't desire If I should wait for the 2017 to get 32GB, because I want the next Macbook Pro to last minimum 5 year and I use it only for graphic design, video editing. Here is the original photo. I just sat the brightness down in Photoshop. fo the first picture. For me it is too much I think. I dont know. Never had a big monitor before with IPS.

    Backlight bleed is a lottery. You'll likely go through a dozen screens or more before you find one that's better and no manufacturer I know of recognizes bleed from an IPS display as a manufacturing defect. From your pictures you at least seem to have pretty even bleed from all corners, which is way better than having one corner stand out a lot.
