    I have a rMBP that I've had since August and ever since I got it, it's had an issue with the screen flickering. It usually happens on webpages with a lot of images, it tends to happen often on Facebook. During FaceTime, the bottom half of my screen will flash/flicker very fast occasionally. Also, there is weird behavior when typing sometimes - the text will flicker and disappear and just look weird. I have two videos to show a bit of what I'm talking about:

    Flickering while scrolling/images (look at the bottom of the window): Feb 17, 2 04 53

    Weird text behavior: Feb 17, 2 07 52

    These are issues that have been present since I've had this MacBook and I've just gotten used to them, but now I realize that nobody else seems to have these issues... Any insight is greatly appreciated. I've already run an Apple Hardware Test, with no results.

    Do you have AppleCare on the machine? well, regardless of that fact, it seems like a LCD issue (hardware). Go to an Apple Store and have it checked out. Doubt anyone here can do anything.
