    I have uploaded pics, you can just about tell the difference (I hope)

    Both are A018 :/ I personally prefer the yellowish one for now but going to get that one replaced due to trackpad issues but it's quite concerning that with replacements from Apple, you can fix your previous issue but there might be another on the new MBP :(

    Also is IR a big issue on the rMPB 13 2013?

    Does anyone else prefer the slightly more yellowish tint?

    as i see yellowish one(or warmer one as people say) is more contrast(due dim?)
    but i think it bester to keep left one-without yellowish
    and check for IR with tests in yellow tint issue theme...here in forums or in apple forums(burn-in... theme)

    Also, test for IR for a longer period of time (showing same image for one hour!). The IR issue is mostly not noticable when the device is new, therefore use a longer test period on a new device. I also did this, did not find IR with 10 minute test but found severe IR with a 1 hour test. When the device gets older, also 10 minute tests show IR which you would not have noticed when the device was new.

    Both on full brightness and same settings.

    They're both going back :(

    Battery and trackpad issues. Both have displays that seem fine, no dead pixels etc but you never know the third one might :(
