    Hello,

    So I previously posted here regarding some other issue. Now, another has come up :mad:.

    My Macbook Pro RD slide off my shelf and landed on another macbook pro on the floor (I did have carpet, but it had to land on the another mac:mad::mad::mad:).
    It wasn't that far off the ground.

    My Macbook pro seems to be working pretty fine with no odd noises or anything. But when I was using chrome today, it froze for a-bit then some pixels problems appeared on the top right of the screen, which than disappeared. I'm worried there is some internal damage problems to the Macbook?

    You're not really asking a question, so I'm just guessing as to what you want to know. But yes, there may be damage to the laptop. You dropped it.

    Sorry if I wasn't clear. The computer is working fine, just that one problem which I mentioned. Should I just take it to apple for a check?

    You could always try running Apple diagnostics?

    If there are any issues at all, even just one, then the computer is not working fine.

    You could, but expect to pay for any repairs that a check finds.

    I ran a full 1hr Apple diagnostics, and found no issue with the Apple hardware.

    Would the apple diagnostics pick problems with the macbook screen as well? The 1 sec pixel issue on the top right corner of screen hasn't occurred since yesterday.

    Probably not, unless the issue was caused by the GPU.

    In that case, I wouldn't worry about it.
