    So I bought a Refurbished 2011 MBP from Apple in 2012 and should have done my homework as mine died to Radeongate. apple replaced it... after the threat of lawsuits hovered over them. I need a second machine now. Wont need to do the same intense graphics use on the machine I'm looking to buy now. considering either a refurb or going with a Windows 10 laptop via Costco.

    Wondering if there's been any large scale problems with the late 2013 models. Looking at a dual core 2.4GHz, 13.3" rMBP.

    Yes, there are: staingate and ghosting. Try to google it. These were and still are huge issues, so be careful.

    thanks Max.

    I don't want to deal with that kind of crap, once again. I guess its back to Windows for me. I've been looking forward to a touch screen computer anyway.

    There have been screen problems but a minority obviously or there would have been a massive recall or legal action against Apple. My late 2013 MBPr is a superb computer ... Fast, plenty of ports, portable, beautiful screen, quiet.

    They're not "huge" issues, they just get overblown on this forum which attracts the 0.1% with an issue.

    The various dGPU faults over the years are closer to a huge issue, but don't affect the 13" models.

    Touch screens get old after a day or two of use. They're probably the stupidest and most unergonomic gimmick ever put into a laptop. Flailing your arms about at a vertical surface is not the way to go. If you truly want touch, I'd go with something like a Surface, that can actually be used as a proper tablet.
