    Hi,

    I have a 13 inch macbook retina, mid 2014. I just bought this macbook a month ago. I noticed sometimes the macbook blinks for 1 second(flickering/ glitch). there is no particular apps that leads to this glitch, i am currently on yosemite 10.10.2, has anyone experienced it? should I bring the macbook to genius bar to prevents further damage? please share your thought. Thanks

    Book a Genius bar appointment online. They have a tool/software that connects to your Mac and does a diagnostic for you. It would be great if you could catch it on video to show them when you go.

    If nothing else, as I learned the hard way on my MacBook Air, if you report an intermittent issue during the warranty period and it becomes worse after the warranty period, they'll honor the repair. If you sit on it until it's out of warranty, you're simply hosed.

    thanks for your response,
    is it the same thing with AHT (apple hardware test)?

    The tools used at the Genius bar or at an Apple Authorised repairer test far more thoroughly than AHT.
