    Week 28, here. Got it early July. Yes, the week number is after the 7 in the serial number.

    lol...I don't think there is any real significance to this aside from the chance that it could be one way to track the bad batch of screens that was sold when the SR MBPs first came out. Some earlier week builds displayed more "display" issues than those built later on.

    Just a guess, so don't take my word for it. Maybe there is something else that I'm not aware of. ;)

    Mine is a week 31. Purchased July 24. Sent August 7. Still in transit.
    Can you guys with a week 31 build comment on whether you have screen issues or not?

    So week 30 and later should have "less" LED issue? Anyone with week 30 or later and still have LED issue?

    mine is from week 31. less issue than the first two machine. but i still can kinda see the overcast down the bottom 1/3...

    so less problem, but the problem is still there. people aren't cry as loud as before, like me.

    Week 31

    I just bought an MBP, week 31, glossy, Samsung. Looks fine to me. Unfortunately, after all the paranoia on this forum, I keep imagining the bottom of the screen is yellow. But when I look at it carefully, it seems fine. The machine seems very well put together -- I'm quite happy with it so far.
