After 5 years of using an HP, I decided to switch over to Apple this past May. I bought my Macbook Pro 13" with a retina display about 8 weeks ago. Everything has been working great up until today I opened up my laptop and found vertical lines spanning from the top to the bottom of the screen. Ever since I bought this laptop I have been extremely cautious with it - I have never dropped it or have I exerted force on the laptop its self. It was working fine literally 3 hours ago. When I take a screen shot the vertical lines are not present. Also, when I connect my macbook to my TV via HDMI there are no vertical lines present on my TV. At least to my knowledge this cannot be an accidental mistake so I'm hoping that I can get this resolved. I called Apple Support and they said that since I purchased it 8 weeks ago and there are no screen cracks, it should be covered by the 1 year manufacturers warranty. I have an appointment at the Apple Store on Thursday. Has this happened to anyone else? P.S. The right side of the screen still functions and works it just looks like its a cosmetic issue.
