    Since this issue is attracting a lot of attention on the forum I am interested to see if there is any correlation of data across build weeks (especially starting now if this gains more traction). If you post your data here I will compile it into a spreadsheet and make it available somehow.

    Use this link to check for the details, then we can keep it consistent. Enter your serial in the top left search box:

    Post your:
    Order Date
    Arrival Date
    Build Week (via link above)
    Production Number (via link above)
    Screen Manufacturer
    Configuration (CPU/RAM/Flash Size)
    Image Retention (Acceptable, Unacceptable, None)

    For Example:
    Order Date: 13/09/2012
    Arrival Date: 17/09/2012
    Build Week: 38
    Production Number: 830
    Screen Manufacturer: Samsung
    Configuration: 2.6/16/256
    Image Retention: None

    I know the Image Retention section is subjective but it's interesting data to collect on people's opinions of it. I will calculate age from the difference between Arrival Date and the date you post the data.

    By submitting your data here you are giving me permission to hold it in a persisted form against your MacRumors username, only post if you agree to those terms!

    If we try to keep other speculation in separate threads we can keep this relatively tidy.

    Retina Display Brand ~ via MBP Serial Number?

    Does anyone know if it is possible to determine the Retina display manufacturer, and SSD brand, via the Serial Number? Presumably, Apple support have all this info, but will they supply it upon request? And that does not work, then can it be determined via AppleCare? Would be great to know before unboxing the machine and facing possible weeks of downtime waiting for replacements (even if that is processed). Thanks.
