So I picked up my Mid-2014 15" rMBP yesterday from Apple Store Regent's Street (London). I got the base 15" (2.2Ghz Quad Core i7, 16GB RAM & 256GB SSD). Great laptop - having come from a 13" MBA, this is a great step up. The only abnormality I've found is possible screen uniformity issues - but I'm not sure. When I look at the centre of the screen head on, its nice and bright with good colour and contrast. Whilst looking at it head on, the right hand side appears slightly darker with a little less contrast. The left side does this also but you'd barely notice it. If I tilt the screen or move my head so the right hand side of the screen is head on, the brightness is almost as good as the centre.....but not perfect. How this translates to day to day use is that whilst reading a sentence of text on a white background (like webpages) your eyes see a gradual darkening of the background when your eyes hit the last 25% of the screen on the right. I've played the panel lottery with my Samsung LED TV as that had banding problems and I'll be damned if I have to go through that again with Apple. What do people think? Within tolerance or fault?
