    I dont even know how to describe what's going on with my screen so i took some screenshots of me playing WoW since that's where the problem is more apparent and one desktop ss.

    However, this did not happen while i was playing WoW.

    Intel Graphics Chip broken on the Logicboard (motherboard), it will need replacing, I assume this is still under its 1 year warranty as its a new laptop design, therefore take it to an Apple Store, let the Geniuses inspect it, they will tell you the logicboard needs replacing, it will take 4 hours if your lucky, it wont cost you anything, you wont loose any data, problem solved.

    If for any reason you've dropped your laptop or you splilt water on it or did anything to void the warranty this will cost you $600 to fix.

    I have the lines on the left side of the screen that this guy has but....

    I have the lines on the left side of my screen the first poster does. He seems to be talking about the jumbled up lines on the right side, which I don't have. I don't know if this is normal or not, I don't remember this ever being here before. Is this common? Can I replace the screen or is it something more complex?

    They are not always that noticeable but on a dark color (not black) it really seems to stand out.

    Someone please give me some direction. My Apple care is expired.

    My screen

    Your video chip is shot. Looks like overheating to me.

    I can't see anything wrong with yours, which would indicate that the problem's happening "after" the screenshot. Try taking a photo.
