    So for about the past month the screen on my 13" has been flickering like once or twice every hour I use it. I'm not sure if flicker is the right word, but what happens is half the screen just gets all staticy like on old analog TV when you didn't have a good signal.

    It's kind of hard to explain but it's pretty annoying.

    Also when I run boot camp in flickers like every few min on the whole screen, and doesn't stop.

    So I cant even use Windows on my Mac with BootCamp because of this, I tried upgrading the drivers and what not, but still the same issues.
    I'm pretty sure those issues are related.

    But this barley started happening about a month ago on when I run OS X, I even did a fresh install and still the same.

    What would be my recourse? I have Apple Care +, So I still have warranty for 2 more years. If I go to the Apple Store will they ignore or help me?

    Is this a common issue?

    I found a pic that depicts pretty close to what happens:

    They won't ignore you for something like that, go :p Sounds like a hardware issue to me.
