    Hey guys, just had a few questions. Just got my refurbished macbook pro in today, it is the top end model early 2013 (16gb/256/2.7/650m).

    Just checked which screen I got, and it is the LG screen. Wanted to know if this will be a problem since from what I've heard the Samsung screens are better.
    The battery cycle on this Macbook is at 4 which I suppose is good. One thing I noticed is I have the brightness on full and it seems like even having the brightness at 75% feels too low compared to the late 2013 15" I had. Let me know what you guys think if you don't mind. Thanks a ton!

    the screen is less bright on the retina models than on previous macbook pros/other portable macs, this is not a defect with your model

    One thing I've noticed more than before since I've never owned MacBooks before is, the early 2013 models when they wake up from sleep take a couple seconds before the screen appears or turns on. The haswell models turns on immediately.
