    So I experienced an issue with my mbpr and wanted to share it with you all..... I had it for 2 weeks with no problem, then noticed some odd things happening when i would be using safari. It didn't matter if i was just checking my email or working on a website on Wordpress. I would experience random screen flashing and stuck browser windows when on safari.... Has anyone experienced this before? I have videos and pictures.... I took my mbpr to the Genius Bar and they deemed it a logic board issue with my graphics card.... They replaced it and i haven't experienced it again yet....

    Here is the photos... ill work on uploading the videos....

    It occurred in fire fox also.... but I only noticed it when using a web browser.... nothing would occur when playing a game or even when using photoshop.

    I think it's a safari bug just like the typing lag. This happens occasionally on my 2011 MBP.

    I have seen the "left behind" squares in Safari, where part of a previous screen is not refreshed. At first I thought it was caused by bad graphics hardware, but it seemed related to running other software such as Win 7 in a virtual machine. I am not 100% sure but it is not a major or frequent problem if the VM is off. This is on a 15" rMBP with Samsung screen & 16 GB, purchased late Oct. 2012.

    I am not doing anything out there....actually don't even run win 7 or vm on my mac..... I had the same impression that it may be a safari issue (software), but the genius bar insisted it was a hardware issue.....So who knows...

    i got this problem as well, usually happens when im on Gmail and its so annoying, i figure its a software issue so ive been waiting and waiting for Apple to fix this, but if this turns out to be an hardware issue then I will bring it in to Apple.

    15in RMBP here with 2.3 16Gb

    PS. i would take Steve Smith over Andre Johnson rest of the way, and Bush is dropable haha
