So, I went to the Apple store to get my MacBook Pro fixed (wouldn't boot all the way, ended up being software) Now, since I was there, I wanted to get the screen replaced for terrible IR (see it in normal use). Now, he ran the checkerboard test for 4 minutes and he said it passed, which I find ridiculous, I'm thinking the only explanation was the fact that the screen hadn't been used extensively for about 2 days, either way, I knew mine was LG using the test, as well as the fact that it showed the IR, I tried to show him a picture of it I took, but he gave me the normal script of "If we replace it, it could be worse" I didn't care because I knew this was a scripted response and there is only a small chance this is true, especially because a Samsung screen would fix the problem. Is this IR in the picture bad, I think it is and I think it shouldn't have passed. Update: I went to a different apple store and told the manager about my problem, even though I had no appointment, he immidatly went and got his best genius, immidatly the genius started to check out my computer, I told him about the crash that was eventually fixed, checked console logs and found a ton of crashes in my system, ran a diagnostics, screen was indeed bad as well as my thunderbolt port was broken too, this, coupled with the fact my computer creaked and the logic board made a hissing noise, he didn't even want to try to fix it, they said they want to replace my entire machine, the manager went and brought me a brand new computer, this also had an LG screen, and showed signs of IR. I told him about it, he undid the swap, gave me my computer back until a BTO order directly from the factory mare with a Samsung screen arrived in store, so there is also a possibility ill be getting the early 2013 edition to replace my 6 month old 2012. At the same time, they upgraded my problematic iPad 3rd gen to a 4th gen for free. AMAZING CUSTOMER SUPPORT FROM THEM!
