    I just checked mine and I DO NOT have this problem. I have a 2.6 GHz MacBook Pro Retina w/ 16 GB RAM and 512 GB SSD. Screen is a Samsung. There is a command line you can issue that will tell you whether your screen is an LG or a Samsung, you can search for it online.

    I heard it's LG screens that are suffering from ghosting. It was also LG screens that were at the heart of the iPad 2 backlight bleeding issues.

    Mine looks exactly the same. Still not sure what to do with it since the screen (LSN=Samsung) is flawless otherwise.
    Actually it is only noticeable when screen brightness is really high, yet it shouldn`t be there for the premium price.

    My first one was as bad as that. The second one is a little better, enough that I'll probably won't notice it down the line. Plus the screen is noticeably brighter. Both are Samsung, so I didn't want to take the chance of getting a LG on the next one.
