    So I bought the most expensive model recently: 15" retina, 512gb SSD, 16 gb ram, R9 M370X 2048 MB GPU & forcetouch.
    And I'm experiencing this issue:

    Every once in awhile the screen just shows static grey noise. It's not moving noise, just a flash.
    Altough this happens in a very short moment (like a blink), it happens about once an hour. I'm not sure what triggers it, but i'll like to hear, if anyone has experienced the same. I don't feel like this should be a problem on a 3000$ laptop.

    The Macbook is running with OS X Yosemite 10.10.4.

    If it's bothering you take it back and get apple to check it.

    Results from diagnostics says there's no errors.
    Of course it's bothering me, but I'm not sure if it's worth my time to send it back.

    Absolutely no one else is experiencing the same?

    I think you should follow your own advice. Not acceptable for a $3k laptop. Exchange it.

    I've got the exact same model as the OP and I don't have that problem. If I did I would return it for an exchange, especially if it looked like the video's in the link above. As JE38 said, not acceptable in a $3K machine.
