    Hi,

    I bought my first macbook ever an it's great!
    it's a 13' Haswell 16GB/256 SSD/2.4 i5

    I've read about so much problems on these forums that I became a little 'scared' to buy a Macbook.

    I study Graphic Design so a great screen is necessary.

    Image Retention

    I did the checkerbord test for 5 minutes and I couldn't really see anything, maybe an ever so slightly border.

    However after a day of working I went full screen in chrome so the top Apple bar would disappear and I could see a black shadow line...

    Yellow Screen

    I don't think I have one, but since I can't compare it to anything i'm not sure..
    Is there a way to really check it?


    So I don't know if I should return it?

    As I understand there is no way to check the manufacturer on the 13'?

    No don't return your MacBook. It looks great. Use it, love it, care for it, and enjoy your days together. You have a wonderful piece of technology and have already formed a relationship with the MacBook. I definitely wouldn't consider returning it now.

    Those types of problems don't show up in screen captures.

    Because Chrome doesn't work properly in Mavericks. Have you tried Safari or another browser?

    I've always worked with chrome on my previous pc's. Since it was the fastest for me.

    I will check safari.

    Any chrome vs safari thoughts?

    I personally hate them both. I only suggested Safari because it wouldn't require you to download anything extra since you're just going to run tests to see if it's the browser or something else.

    I prefer Safari. But it really depends if you are using one of their ecosystems. Safari iCloud Tabs rule, if you are using Safari on an iPad and/or iPhone too (as I do). I think there is the same for Chrome OS X and mobile version.
    I had crashes with both Safari and Chrome so it all comes down to personal preferences (imo chrome has the better/more extensions, but safari is faster)

    I posted a similar thread but I see a shadow of the dock on the log in screen. Mind checking yours there?
