Im just trying to figure out if its a normal ammount of bleed or a defective screen. I cant replicate it if i turn the bedroom light on so i suspect it might be hard to replicate it at the Apple store

Do you often use the computer in a dark room with the brightness turned all the way up.
If so, yes return it

I can notice it at half brightness too while watching a movie in a dark room. My point is, you can't have a $329 consumer product be flawless screen-wise and the pro machine look like something from 2007

If you look at those corners at different angles, does it disappear (indicating IPS glow rather than bleed)?

If it is bleed, then that is a defect and you should return. It’s not even about dark rooms.

yes it does go away. if I tilt the screen up the bottom bleed dissapears almost completely and vice versa. Looking dead on though, I can see the bleed in 3 corners

Hard to tell for us as, cameras usually overexpose IPS glow.

Have a read of that and see if it helps you come to a conclusion.

IPS although not ideal, is a side effect of IPS panels. IPS bleed however is a manufacturing defect caused by the panel not being placed properly. I think the top edge of the screen seems to indicate IPS bleed.

It’s backlight bleed and it’s disgusting. You should take it to Apple as soon as you can. I am very ocd and that would drive me insane. We pay for a Retina display, it should be perfect.
