    Purchased my MBP yesterday so when it gets here this week I'll check build date, screen, and update thread.

    ? confused ? Isn't the yellowing issue confined to MacBook Pros with LED backlit screens?

    Yep, I played the game of luck that buying a mbp has become. Unfortunately I got burned... samsung glossy with yellow :(.

    Already waiting on sales representative to call me back after I elevated my case up there shortly after receiving the laptop this morning. So the waiting begins again...

    Week 31 Build
    arrived 8/29

    small ac adapter
    09c68 samsung


    absolutely not in my mind, 1/3 of the screen is urine yellow, and it's not just on a white background.

    It's going back. What a waste of time.

    sorry to hear you got a dud. do you think we could see some pictures? I have yet to see what a really bad screen looks like - a picture would help guage the severity of the problem.

    You might want to keep it, they might send you a new one with the old power adapter, and we all know how much of a problem that is going to be.:rolleyes:
