System Preferences > Displays > Color > Open Profile > scroll to line 17 and click on it. It isn't clear from evidence posted here that it matters. Some have found differences based on small sample sizes, while others have seen no differences overall.

I don't think it really matters to be honest.
There's good and bad samples in all models.

I returned 1 TB MBP 15 because it had a horrible screen.
My second has the best screen I've ever used on a laptop.
It has an average Delta E of 0.4!!!! Yes, 0.4!
That is Eizo standard right there.

Not that I know what that means, but you seem very excited about that result.
How can I check?

It's pretty much irrelevant unless you do work on your mbp that requires accurate colour.
If your screen doesn't have any blatant pink, yellow or green patches then you've got a goodun

Don't to any relevant work on my MPB, but so far so good and everything looks great.

Are you guys doing the thing where you check the screen then return it if it's not the one the internet says you should have?
