    I have noticed something strange that occurs occasionally on my MBP (i5, latest gen). The display seems to have "noise" in the quality of graphics. It's hit or miss when it happens, and a reboot stops it temporarily. It returns after a few days.

    I'm going to the Apple store today, but thought I'd see if anyone else has this issue. I am a little touchy about MBP graphics (had issues in the past...).

    Thanks

    Took it in to Apple today. The genius said it must be "lazy pixels" and they are holding it until a new display comes in. Saw the bill = over $600! Thankfully it was under warranty.

    Should be ready to pick up next week.
