    So I have my new retina - just replaced a 15" MBP.

    Its wired into my Thunderbolt equipped cinema display. Both screen in to maximise real estate.

    The new retina screen has a distinct pink tinge to it - especially compared to the Cinema display and indeed my previous 15" MBP.

    Is that normal? Will it get better once its burned in?

    Is there a way to correct it to make the white's look more white?

    Have you tried creating a custom display profile and see if that helps?

    I have done multiple calibrations, and no matter what, the white point of the retina has this pinkish hue.

    Did you ever get this problem fixed? My retina screen just started having a pink hue. Then it turned to a green hue (at startup). Then, the bottom portion of the screen was freezing for about 3-5 seconds with whatever picture was there then releasing and then moving on.
    Then it all went away and was fine for a few days. The pink is back again now.
