    Here is a video of the problem: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NqZgHdJb7UQ
    The slightest touch will make the screen freak out. It goes between this kind of monochrome and then back to normal color. It was happening before the motherboard died several weeks back, but seamed to be fixed when the replaced the motherboard, but it just started back up today. None of the dying motherboard symptoms have come back though. Has anyone seen anything like this before?

    I have 3 thoughts:
    1. It looks like you need to adjust your rabbit ears antenna! Try some tinfoil! :D
    2. "Doc, my screen flickers when I do this!" Doc: "Then, don't do that!" :D
    3. It's normal for the screen to do something similar to that if you flex or press the screen with enough pressure. However, it doesn't look right that it would do that with such little pressure. I'd take it to Apple.
