I got a 'mura' (cluster of white pixels) on my 6 month old rMBP.

The screen is now being replaced at the Genius Bar. The genius ordered me a screen. Will it be a new screen or a refurbished one?

do you know the part number? Did they order and give you any paperwork? if so the part # should be on the paper work

in my experience it would say "Refurb" on the ticket if that was what they were ordering. The pricing looks right for a new LCD

This is what mine cost for a 15"
